I have a deep love of paper dolls. I have been thinking about making some for my little nieces for Christmas this year. I have made them for myself when I was a little girl, my sisters and my niece who is now 21 years old (how time flies). I like especially to make dolls that evoke the person who is receiving them. I even made dolls where I xeroxed the person’s face and attached to a sketched body. Then I made an outfit that reminded me of them. That was really fun. Over on PatStudio: A Celebration of Slowly Made Goods, she was talking about some vintage paper dolls and the nostalgia they evoked for her. I have the same sweet feeling: remembering my store bought paper dolls, punching them out, and my drawn paper dolls. Mmm… maybe I will draw those paper dolls for my nieces today.
