For so many of us, as doll-makers...
the entire journey and process of a doll "becoming" is sheer joy!
My "Companions Along the Journey" series
have been no different in this respect.
They each have waist-coat jackets and sleeves
(100% wool felt, which still need to be dyed)
and funny little individual hats.
Aren't the vintage spectacles a hoot!
I think my favorite hat is the simple rectangle style
that has been folded twice and then stitched along the back seam...
opened up like a little "Dutch" hat, ink stamp and coffee-stained
with vintage buttons added to the corners.
Today I hope to cover their little boots with paper maché,
and then cover their little bodies with paper maché mulberry papers.
