It has been a long time away from my dolls - this blog and creating cards and paper crafts had taken priority over the past many months. Finally, I have again begun to create some little people and thought you might like to take the journey with me.
I wanted to get back in the groove, so to speak, with a pattern that was fun and not so difficult but yet had some challenge to it. "Happy Harry Have A Heart" fit these requirements, as he is funny and cute and there is some face sculpting. I originally was going to make him last winter for a Christmas gift. The pattern is by Jill Maas and I love her patterns - they are so well written and the characters she creates are wonderful! :<) So I begin.
Happy Harry pattern and head pieces drawn, pinned and ready to sew. I am using a fleece material and as the pieces are so small I will not cut them out until I have sewn around them. As you can see, there are double number of pieces drawn - as true to form, I decided to make two of them in case one didn't work out and I wanted to share the process with you. :<) Plus, the photo on the pattern shows a pair!
Tomorrow the heads are sewn, cut out and stuffed.
