Sadie and Martha

Small hand painted dolls I made.
To make them I drew a face on some fabric.
Stamped it randomly, then painted it with acylic paint.
The body is just a tube sewn around with the bottom left open to stuff firmly.
The costume is made of draped fabrics, ribbons and lace, maybe some beads too.I pin the clothing to figure out the look I want. Then hand sew.
To create a stand I cut an oval from cardboard. Cover it with more fabric and slip stitch in place after closing the bottom with a running stitch.
