Divas? Goddesses? Sages?
for some time. You will see that for most of them I used fabric with a horse motif.
These were all meant to be ready for the beginning of the Chinese New Year "Year of the Horse" ...
|1. Draw a basic shape,|
2. Use it as a template
3. Sew around the outside of the template with the right sides of fabric together
4. Cut from the doubled fabric, leaving a small seam.
|5. Turn right side out ( turning tubes are useful)|
|6. Cut a small slit where the polymer clay face mask will cover.|
7. Stuff polyfill through the opening to fill the shape firmly.
8. Stitch up the opening
|9. Embroider a free form design and add beads.|
|10. Make a small face mask from polymer clay.|
( You can use a commercial mould as I did or sculpt your own.)
|11. Stitch and/or glue the polymer clay face mask over the opening.|
12. Embroider or bead around the face.
|14. Use braids, ribbons or trims to create these dolls.|
