I know it’s been awhile since my last post (goodness has it already been two years?!), however, I hope that those of you who subscribed are still interested in what I’ve been making. We ‘re in the process of moving back to Canada at the moment, after 6 years in China, so I’m hoping to be posting more to this blog now than I have before.
Last year, I was teaching the children different types of clothing that go with different professions. So I made a felt doll and the uniforms to denote different occupations. I’ve been meaning to post about them for ages because they were so popular but studying for graduate school got in the way, but at long last here are the felt dolls. For now I’m going to post the basic doll with a couple of clothes, but later on I will be posting about the different types of clothing I have made for the dolls, as well as their hairstyles, as currently everything is still in China where my partner, R, is coordinating our move.
Here is the basic doll. For this one, there was no sewing involved. I used a hot glue gun and puff paint to make it.
And here is the dolls being used in play. I designed the clothes as part of a Weather clothing set, though after awhile the children just mixed and matched to their hearts content. This picture was taken in R’s class, where I’m told the toy was such a hit that they had to schedule play time with the set so everyone could have a go.
I will be posting a pattern later, on Craftsy, for anyone who might be interested, as well as patterns for all the clothes.
Thank you for stopping by. Until next time!
