This doll is from a workshop I had the privilege to attend a few years ago. The Pattern is Called Mary Beth. It is a Sherry Goshen pattern and, of course, Sherry taught the class. It was a wonderful class and I learned a lot.
I dressed her today. Now she hasn't been naked all this time. She just didn't like what she was wearing. You know how girls are. I was watching TV today and Saw a doll maker altering fabric. Using lots of fibers and free motion quilting techniques. Now I have tried this before. And messed up my sewing machine really bad. Since, that was quite a while ago.... And I didn't remember how painful it was to be without my beloved machine for a while. I decided to try it again. You will see the results in her cape.
