It’s pure joy to carve little wooden dolls.
And, because I love weaving on small looms, it makes sense to weave dresses for them, too.
Here are the latest of my ‘Story Door Dolls’ wearing their woven dresses.
And, a little closer view of the ones that I wove in a video tutorial on how to weave the dresses:
Jim looked at all the dolls set up on the dining room table, and said that it looked like Christmas to him.
I loved that it looked festive!
I was celebrating, as it’s taken me quite awhile to figure out exactly how to weave the dresses…. I have a tendency to start out by doing things in incredibly complicated ways.
It then takes a lot of trial and error, and many iterations, to get to the place of simplicity.
But, I’ve finally gotten there, and I am pleased.
Here’s the video tutorial on how to weave doll dresses for 6 inch dolls.
In the video, I forgot to mention that I carve my dolls fairly slender, so if your doll is somewhat thicker through the torso, weave the 2 bodice sections wider.
Happy weaving and happy carving!
