Hello doll lovers! This blog was created to tell you about dolls I have made and classes I teach on doll making at Attic Window Quilt Shop in Comstock Park, Michigan (a suburb of Grand Rapids). My goal in teaching is to pass on the love of making heirloom quality dolls. Most of the dolls I make (and hold classes for) are designed by Gail Wilson - visit her website at www.gailwilsondesigns.com . Page down my blog for some fun doll links including antique doll sites and hard to find doll supplies.

What a fun day

What  a fun day we had today at doll bee at Attic Window Quilt Shop on Alpine at Six Mile Road here in Comstock Park, MI . Barb H showed us how to make miniature clothes line and fabric bowls.  Then later we discovered these little bowls might be used for doll hats!

Here are Barb H's GW fashion doll in her basket hat and my finished fashion doll with Darlene in back at left and Barb V at right.


Maggie is painting her GW fashion doll's face. She did a marvelous job.  And yes, the doll has whispered her name to Maggie - it's Scarlett.    We have good hopes that Scarlett will get out of the cup soon.                            Shirley (in purple shirt) is working on her fabric bowl.  We discovered you need a short sewing machine foot for these mini bowls.
Barb V is working on her waxed linen flower basket.  Earlier in the day, Barb V painted skin color on her Queen Anne doll head that was hand carved and has bead eyes. 

I missed taking a picture of Pat, as she had left already - she was working on her GW Pincushion doll.  I'll have to snag a picture of her and her doll next time. 

Come join us for the next doll bee for some fun!  Bring anything you want to work on.  We meet every 2nd Thursday of the month at 10 am. 

Thanks for visiting and have some doll fun today - Julie

psssst - you know what's really nice about doll bee?  There is no kitty face in your face.

I need to redo my button loops - they are too thick.
