Doll Club Fairies

Fairies - all made from the same pattern but oh how different they look.

This is the fairy I got to take home.  She was done by Susie. 

Doll club Fairy Challenge

Doll club was a ball again!  We had fairies galore!  All started with the same pattern and we ended up with fairies of all sorts of sizes and colors and shapes.  What fun.

Doll Body Fabric

I am very excited!  My new doll body fabric has arrived.  I got a pinkish color suede cloth and craft velour.  Will see which works best.  And which I like best.  I used to use only knit fabric.  And then I started using cottons which I really like - but it is hard to find a nice skin color with some weight to it and yet not too heavy.  But I love the feel of my new fabrics!  

Both have a little stretch but not too much and they don't ravel.  The 'suede cloth' I got at Joann's ravelled very badly.  Remember the blown out nose!   It had a very nice feel to it but the raveling was terrible.

I must praise the service from CR Crafts.  I placed my order on line and the fabric arrived really quickly. 

My February doll club challenge angel is nearly done.  I am pleased with the way she has turned out.  Have some embellishment to do.  Then maybe I'll make another one.................or two.

Eastside Doll Club meets the 3rd Thursday of every month at Crossroads Mall.  We are the group of ladies in the food court playing with dolls. 

Happy Sunday
