I am a dyed in the wool doll maker. No matter what loom or fiber arts tool I am working with, it doesn’t take long for me to wonder how I could use it to make a doll.
So, it’s no surprise, that as I was designing projects for my new book on the vintage Lily Speed-O-Weave loom, (that’s a link to my website to see more) I had to come up with some fun dolls and stuffies.
Monster Dear was inspired by a book that my daughter loved when she was a very little girl.
It was about a monster who was afraid of the dark. She loved him, so of course, I had to make her one.
This is a new version of ‘Monster Dear’. I think he’ll chase away bad dreams!
And, a ball of squishy soft yarn inspired me to make the snuggly Bunny dolly:
I’ve always loved rabbits and bunnies, so I’ve designed and made countless versions of them over the years.
These two fuzzy friends delight me. Ah, the joys of yarn- it’s endless!!!!
