Lately, I have had a very magical time, carving small, and even smaller, (much smaller) dolls and weaving for them.
It all began just over a week ago, when one of our son’s neighbors gave us some lovely Birch wood.
I knew that there were dolls inside the Birch wood that were just longing to get out!
So, I took some of the Birch branches to the bandsaw:
And, cut out the rough shapes for the 6 inch tall dolls, and then I started carving:
I showed how I wove dresses for ‘Hope’ and ‘Joy’ in my previous post: LINK.
They could hear that there was a little sister calling to them from inside one of the branches on their family tree:
After a day or so of carving:
Tiny ‘Coco’ happily emerged from her branch.
Then, I got out my 2 inch square vintage Weave It loom to weave her a dress.
She’s about 3 1/2 inches tall.
Coco Birchtree is very happy to have her picture taken at the Story Door and to join her sisters and the other
Story Door Dolls in my studio.
I’m looking forward to seeing what she and her sisters discover about life around the Story Door!
