firstly, merry christmas! I hope you had a lovely one filled with everything you like
As part of my Christmas, I participated in The Toy Society’s Christmas Drop (What a lot of capitals)
The idea, for those of you who haven’t seen it yet, is to make a doll and then leave it somewhere for someone to find with a tag that says TAKE ME HOME, I’M YOURS and some contact info for the Toy Society.
This was my doll (and the post on the blog):
The doll I made was the first in a series I’m currently doing, and by that I mean that I sewed her and thought – oh, she’s great, I’ll make more of her. The basic pattern is what I’m using to make the portrait dolls (one of which can be seen here)
The wonderful thing was that not only was the doll found, but the lady who found her emailed in. You can read her email here. That makes me so happy
In other news, my top hat sold on etsy. How ace is that? It’s been a long time since she’s been used, and now she’ll be winging her way to America where the lovely Stephanie will love her and keep her and feed her well. Stephanie has the same problem I have, which is a 23 inch head. This makes for not a lot of hats that fit. She’s been looking for a top hat for a while but they’ve all been too small. Until now!
Yay for the interconnectedness of etsy, the web and the community.
