Florette the Doll

I took a class yesterday with Julie Booth (www.threadborn.com). We made this doll, Florette (although I'm going to give mine a different name). She's not finished yet; she needs hair and some additional beading, I think. The face is thread sculpted and drawn. I used some scraps of sheers to wrap around as the underskirt and overskirt. The rest of the fabric is, variously, rolled or folded cotton batiks. In the class kit, Julie provided the face fabric, embroidery thread, and various other items along with the use of pencils and pens to do the drawn-in features.

Julie is a very good teacher and very generous. I'm looking forward to taking another class from her in the spring. She does a lot of 3D work. Thanks, Julie for a great time! Posted by Picasa
