Scrap bag squares

Whilst the children watched an afternoon movie I found some quiet time to start putting together some new square dolls. I’ve used some lovely scraps passed onto me by my mums dress making partner, they stopped business a few years ago And I am the lucky recipient of their clear outs. I’m printing the faces on linen from my original drawings, I wanted a contrast between the quite childlike cartoon faces and the rather sophisticated fabrics, many are vintage liberty, a mix of cottons, silks and Varuna wools. I’m also experimenting with a kind of modernist or Russian constructivist look by adding simple shapes in flat colours, the triangular or half circle hats, circular pom poms and triangles, rectangles and squares on their bodies.
