It's been awhile since I have met with my Art Group Friends. We took two months off to enjoy the summer break. I have really missed that creative outlet and the sweet ladies that come to these monthly meetings.
Now that summer has retreated and we are back to our scheduled routines we are back to creating artful projects.
For awhile now I have been wanting to learn the craft of making vintage inspired wool/cotton dolls. When our cute Julie came up with the idea to create these vintage replica dolls I was like a little girl waiting for Christmas day.
Can I just say it was soooooo fun!!!!
I loved making these sweet simple dolls.
Julie has written a wonderful book called "Pretty Little Felts". It is filled with sweet and simple artful projects, including the instructions to make these tiny dolls.
This is the sweet doll Julie created when she was compiling artful projects for her book.
This is the tiny doll I created. I used some old spun cotton that I have been storing for 15 years! I also used a photograph of LuLu when she was a baby... a sweet gift for her to treasure. I think they would make wonderful Christmas ornaments using photographs of your little ones.
I love using vintage photographs in my projects. I also made this batty witch that sits on a paper bird-pull.
For my Artful Thursday giveaway I am gifting someone with Julie's wonderful book and a artful Halloween kit. Leave a comment and I will pick someone for my next Artful Thursday post.
