dolls

When I went up to my mom’s we were looking through some old boxes and we found this.  It is a doll I made for my sister probably 15 years ago or so.  I used an embroidery machine to make the face.  The hair I made out of socks.  I had some black socks at the time that had long ribbing.  I sewed the edge of several socks down in layers and then cut up the rib lines to make hair. This is a little crocheted doll that my grandmother made for me and then I passed to my sister.  I love how sculptural it is.
