So excited to share with you this Primitive Doll class. This is my first ever stitched class. We will create a super-easy primitive doll with lots of character! We will stitch our doll and then finish her off by roughly painting the face.....all on wonderful muslin.
Who this class is FOR:
anyone wanting to create their own primitive doll
those of you who like to paint and dabble in sewing
anyone with basic sewing machine skills. (this is not a class on how to set up or run a machine)
anyone who is too impatient to sew by hand...(raises hand!)
who likes to paint faces!
If you know how to sew dolls but are looking for inspiration and technique on painting faces on the dolls then come on and join in!
Who this class isn't geared towards:
anyone who already knows how to free motion stitch and make simple dolls AND Paint faces on their dolls (although this might inspire you so jump in either way)
someone who has never sewn or doesn't own a sewing machine without the capability for free motion stitching
What you'll need for the class:
a sewing machine with the ability to lower feed dogs --> and a quilting foot (or free motion foot)
liquid stitch - for gluing on trim/ribbon and for any lil imperfections
Fabric only scissors - these are the ones I use. cheap and good! I like having a small pair as well for the little jobs such as cutting loose threads and trimming away access fabric from your doll. This is a good set (or something similar)
Omg Mindy !!!! These are so so adorable ! I am going to think hard about taking this class . I use to make all types of primative folk dolls years an years ago ....ReplyDelete
About how long are the videos? I have done some drawing and painting before, including faces. Would you recommend reading your book before taking the class?ReplyDelete
The videos range in time from 15-25 minutes. The last one with the bunny is 30 minutes. no, you don't have to do the book. I would suggest doing the card deck (how to paint a face) though....Delete
Thank you. Will use this class as motivation to finish a spinning project so that I can dive into the doll making with no undone projects to distract. Looking forward to this!Delete
