My Melbourne Show entry


Hooray, finished in the nick of time!

A doll and her doll!


I used 3 different yarns for the big doll's hair - sheep's wool, mohair and alpaca in three colours.

If you're braving the show this year please do pop in to the art and craft pavillion to see one of my dolls "in the cloth". She (they!) will be in the Novelty Toy section.


                         Little embroidered wool felt shoes (recognise the bird print Nic?)

This will be my first entry into any art and craft competition so it's quite exciting. Thanks to Nic from Yardage Design for the heads up and encouragement. Wish me luck!

Oh wow, she is GORGEOUS! I really, really, really want to go to the show this year, but I don't know if we'll be able to make it. If we do though I will be all like "Oh! I know who made that dolly with the first prize ribbon!" ;)
