Pocket dolls

 

After the hair bands I had pocket dolls on my sketchbook list. Years ago I did little pocket dolls and knitted bears and I’ve thought ever since how to reinstate them in a way that’s relevant to my work now, I wanted a cloth version as knitting is not practical whilst I’m a one woman band. I messed about with a mock-up, trying out different fabrics and faces, my final doll has a mixed painted and embroidered face, this example is a bunny for easter. I’ve gone from square heads to square eyes!
