Last week I was overwhelmed by an insatiable urge to use leftover fabric and scraps to make doll quilts. It’s still going on, I am working on doll quilt number 14 at the moment. There is something very satisfying about seeing the scrap pile dwindle away, while at the same time completing tiny perfect doll quilts. As I work, I can’t help but imagine the tea parties that dolls will be able to have on these quilts, and the lovely beds they will be able to sleep in. This is also an excellent opportunity to practice my free motion quilting on small manageable projects, and overall therapeutic.
Recently, my insatiable sewing urge has expanded into felt dolls, and I am trying to perfect a simple felt doll pattern. The felt is so easy to work with – no fraying, and I am using my stash of novelty fabrics, stripes and polka dots for the doll dresses.
