Another new doll

I taught this weekend at AFICC and had a wonderful time with some great Dollmaker's!  There was an anthropomorphic challenge and the teachers are encourages to enter so I created The Fairies New Shoes.  Lots of freemotion and machine embroidery.  She was chosen People's Choice!  I am thrilled! Here are some pics.

A New Doll

I recently completed this Steampunk doll.  I loved that stripe on her skirt-it has metallic goldin it- and really wanted to miter them.

Rag Bag Gals Summer Swap

I finally created a book to hold all the RBG Summer Swap pages.  The pages measure 4" x 6" and are both landscape and portrait.  I thought I would make it a gate fold cover and make the book 7" x 7".   Here are pics of the finished book.
Book open to first pages.  They overlap a bit in the center since they are 4" wide and the book is 7".

Pages open showing the two page orientations.  I attached pieces of lace to the spine side of the pages then attached the lace to the spine.

Spine with buttons as decoration.  They are sewed along the same lines as the lace was attached.

Completed book!

I created a page for my book with the Colleen doll.  Here is her page and tag.
Since the book was getting very thick, I decided I had enough pages so I finished it.  Here are some pics of the finished bound book.  Complete directions on how I did it are found on my Book Bindings page. Now on to the next one!
