I have been toying with the idea of making dolls for a while, but when it has come to designing the face I have really struggled.
After sewing for sometime I have realised that I have really neglected my drawing skills. The body of the doll seems simple and exciting to me, but the face...?
I have always struggled with faces even when I used to do life drawing. I am so envious of people (husband!) who can do the most beautiful and life like portraits.
So for the dolls face I had the dilemma of sewing or printing?
After realising that sewing a face would be just as bad as my drawing skills I decided to set myself a challenge.
I decided to think back to my university days, how did we go through the idea process.....
