Today I have been Sewing Away!
I literally have been in my sewing room since I got up this morning.
Okay, I slept in till 10am, but as sick as I have been lately, I don’t feel guilty. :)
I actually felt like creating today, it has been a couple of weeks and it felt good just to spend the day playing.
Wanna see some of what I have made??
Well, I’m going to show you whether you do or not. LOL!
I must invest in a new camera!!
Maybe it just may eyes, but I doubt it, my photos never look crisp no matter how hard I try!
I made some prim rag dolls out of burlap!!!
They turned out so cute in person.
They were made from vintage burlap sacks and there are some graphics on the back side of the dolls.
I lined the underneath of the burlap so the stuffing doesn't show.
They are, however, completely stuffed with rags, well.. fabric remnants but it is all the same as far as look and feel.
I used true old fabrics for all their clothing and patches. They all have been aged for that olde’ worn appearance.
Sorry the photos don’t pick up that too well.
I also made some church dolls today.
I Love ‘em!!
My first time making these.
Shown is one made of linen fabric, but I have two made of burlap drying.
Yes, I do have an obsession with burlap!! :)
I will show off the burlap church dolls in my next post.
I’m not sure what I am going to do with these.
I think I’m going to keep the church dolls for me.
The others dolls, well, Mom and I have been looking into opening a booth at a local craft and antiques shop.
So I may put these up for that.
I have to get some inventory made up, or will never get one open.
*You know me and when I plan on something, it never seems to happen. Heehee!
I may keep them all or end up listing them on Etsy.
I don’t work tomorrow so my plans are to create some more goodies.
I have a few ideas for some different things.
I hope you all are enjoying your weekend.
