        Santa

        Maxine made the original doll with hair and painted face. It was then passed once   each month to a member of the brown bag group of Jacquie Lecuyer, Peggy Fadyk, Peggy Wilson and Jo-Ann Raven. As the Santa travelled from doll maker to doll maker he was dressed from the waist down, from the waist up, accessories were added and finally the doll was posed.

7            Barbara Hamilton

            A            Savanna

          This doll was designed at a workshop given by Peggy Wilson. It was the first doll designing course that has been offered to the club and I jumped at it as I felt I was ready to go to this next stage of doll making. It was a two day course full of ideas and techniques and lots of inspiration. I had brought along a magazine that had a painting of several women on the cover thinking that these characters would make a great doll. And so happily, with a weekend of work and a lot of luck, here she is my sweet little Savanna. 

       B    Mother Nature

Mother Nature was designed by Julie McCullough.  

8           Roberta Russell

A      Pedestal Doll

The doll is an adaptation of a pedestal doll popularized by American doll artist Lynne Sward.   

B    Witch Doll

The doll was made from a pattern designed by Patti Medaris Culea in her book Cloth Doll Making (2003). The doll was made as part of a brown bag exercise with a with theme. The other participants were Barbara Ross and Jacquie Lecuyer.  

9          Jo-Ann Raven

 A    Elf

Started as a skater and ended up an elf this doll was created during a “ brown bag” exchange.

 B    Tree Spirit

This doll was created for a Mystery Doll Challenge for Ottawa’s cloth doll club, All Dolled Up. We received the pattern for a basic stump doll designed by Jacquie Lecuyer, one body part each month, hence the mystery. It was to be made from found or recycled items.   I redesigned the pattern to suit my own twisted imagination. Her trunk was made from an old cushion from the 60's.  The child is a piece off an old apple tree. The rock was found on a nature walk with my son over 20 years ago and the mouse hiding in the piece of wood was found on the floor at my work. The Leaves were embroidered over sewing scraps from a friend and the flowers are a scrap of yarn from another friends project.  The hair was sent to me from Italy from a former student who’s boyfriend worked in the fashion district.  It is scraps of mohair that he picked off the cutting room floor.  The nest is an acorn cap from the park next door and the eggs are small navy beans. .

A     Marbles…see I’m not losing them I’m finding them!

Marbles was created from mixed pattern pieces from Patti Culea’s Creative Doll Making book for the body and for the head I modified a pattern piece from Lucy Garvin.

She is a doll created for our Secret Sister exchange where we each provided the materials every month with which another doll member would create a doll to trade at the end.

C   Lolita…a pixie trollop

Allison Marano’s Bookshelf Pixie pattern.

She started out demure, but her face and mouth grew into this expression full of attitude and the first body I made her no longer suited her…she wanted bright, rich, luscious reds and greens and not the soft pastel greens and mauve I had started out with.

13        Nancy Leigh-Smith           

A             Mischievous Maeve

The doll was made from Jane Coughlan’s “Beach Babe” pattern. My Beach Babe is basking in the sun on a beautiful beach in Mexico under sunny skies and palm trees. She is taking it easy enjoying her favorite dolly magazine and sipping on a strawberry margarita. She has enjoyed shopping from the beach vendors purchasing jewellery, a sombrero, and a beach mat. The palm tree was made from felt and doweling, the sun tan lotions and fancy drink from Fimo and the sandals from foam sheets.
