MMM - 2009
Well, I am about as ready as I will ever be. I will be headed off to MMM in Richmond KY for doll classes, soon. I have attached photos of all my pre-work and the fabrics and trims. It is going to be something else. Anne Hesse heads this up every year and it is called magic, mischief and mayhem (or mmm). Teachers come from the US and outside of the US to teach. This year Arley Berryhill, Pam Grose and Allison Marano are coming in - and Colleen Babcock is coming to take classes, but will be teaching a pin cushion to us. The pictures are as follows:
Peacock doll - Tall standing up doll- colors are pinks and greens -
Candlestick doll - 1/2 doll mounted to the candle stick - this will be in bright pinks, greens, oranges and black (kind of a naughty cirque de sole' theme)light brown/reddish hair
Sprite (elf)- dark purple velvet with bright greens, oranges and yellow trims (this is the only one we did not have to make the doll for - It will be wire armature wrapped with batting and fabrics - the head will be stuffed and painted in class.)
Pin cushion- funny little colorful thing with the hat and the light blue shoulder bag (we will be learning the face in class)
I am so relieved to have it all together. I will need a trailer to get everything out there! I am going wiht Georgia from High on Dolls. If you go to anne hesse's website, you can see the dolls we will be making- I have had fun making the dolls and "harvesting" all the fabrics and trims and all the last minute supplies. I can't wait to see them done with all their color and character.
I also made a "Friendship Doll" It is black and white with the little blank face. I made this to work on during the drive. I will be hand stitching color on it - just need something to do to pass the time.
I'll post soon so you can see the progress and outcomes of all the dolls.
Til then - happy crafting!
