Ms Sabina Cloth Doll

Ms Sabina

 

Long Eyelashes and red lips!

Ms Sabina Cloth doll with button arms and eyelashes

 

Her outfit is removable… except her knickers!

Her hair is a needle felted with a soft wool mohair and her eyelashes are especially made for dolls and they are glued (textile glue) with felt eyeliner on to her face.

She’s made with Poly cotton.
Her patterned dress is cotton with an elasticated high waist.
Cotton floral knickers are fixed so can’t be removed.

The Polka Dot shawl is cotton and is backed with a heavy silk navy blue material with a large white button with stud fastening.

Her socks are cream jersey fabric with a large lace cuff that go over her felt shoes that also have a small bobble trim on the front.

You can find her on my Etsy shop

Blue Hair and Polka Dots

I DO LIKE STRIPES AND POLKA DOTS…

 

Don't tell anyone but she has cool knickers!

 

Her hair is a needle felted with a soft wool mohair and her eyes are hand drawn with a fabric pen (heat set).

She’s made with linen mix cotton (50% of each), upcycled clothing (that skirt was mine but far too short for me to wear so I decided to use it instead of sitting in storage for years!) the skirt is lined and elasticated waist with stretchy striped sleeveless top (it has sparkles!)

The fluffy pink shawl has light purple polka dot buttons (it’s actually push stud fastener underneath).

The floral knickers are fixed but the other clothes can be removed but be warned – she’s not the ‘running around in public naked’ type of gal!

The armchair was a prop for a stop motion character that I made years ago (link)

Two Cloth Dolls now at L’Arche West Norwood

I’ve made two traditional cloth dolls that have arms that move and hair accessories that are wearable as they have a brooch fitting on the backs.

 

 

RunnyCustardMakes Cloth Dolls 041015 002 RunnyCustardMakes Cloth Dolls 041015 001

The dark haired girl is made with a linen mix – 50% Linen 50% cotton – for the body and the other is a soft cream Calico Cotton.

Their hair is Merino roving wool that is needle felted into hair buns.

Their clothing is 100% cotton with lace trim – the pantaloons are removable but the dress isn’t as it was my first go and I need to tweak my pattern – the next doll that I make will have a removal dress.

They are now at L’Arche in West Norwood, London and currently priced at £18.

I would like the next version to have small bags 🙂

RPS & L’Arche London Shop Relaunch 1st October

RPS & L'Arche London Shop relaunch
Poster created by Agnès Baumont/The Right Stuff Vintage.

 

YES! L’Arche and Rock Paper Scissors London are relaunching their shop in West Norwood next Thursday and we would love you to come for wine and nibbles… yum!

We may still be knee deep in paint, wood shavings and tools we are determined to be up and running whilst looking as stylish as possible.

Here’s some more photos of our refurb – L’Arche staff member Paul who also runs the Garden and lots more is a very handy man and is literally building shelving and the displays himself whilst a few RPS members faff about with paint ;-P

Note: this blog post is a copy of the RockPaperScissorsLondon.co.uk blog post as I run both so I’m allowed! 🙂

We even roped in Aiden who had some spare time between meetings – did you know that L’Arche have been in that building for 40 years (L’Arche will be celebrating their 50th year soon!) and Aiden is the person raising funds to help improve their entire building as there are a few damp spots and crumbling bits so the place will be decorated again but it could be a few years before they have raised enough funds to do so.

Aiden & Elaine sorting the little office ready to have the holes filled and painted.

So pleased that Paul has organised a new carpet… can’t wait to see that installed… here’s a reminder of the old one… ick…
L'Arche-RPS-DIY-230915-003
new carpet soon! thankfully. we had to fill in some holes in the floor and used some spare RPS leaflets to cover them otherwise people stepped in them!
So please come and visit us to say hi and have a nose at the new shiny white space on Thursday 1st October from 6pm – wine and nibbles (think there is some home baked goodies too!) included 😀

update: 30th September…

Apparently, there are shelving units that hate being painted and  repeatedly tries to repel it even after a coat of primer… gargh!

The night before the launch and we think that we will have it fairly presentable 🙂 if still needs work afterwards we think the wine, cakes, cakepops, snacks, nibbles and healthy stuff will make up for it 😀

Here’s some more photos and we have lots to do in the morning to be ready at 6pm!

I’ve never thought of wearing a hat to paint but it’s a good idea – I tend to get paint all over me!

Paul who works for L’Arche declared he doesn’t actually like DIY… we all stared at him as he was the one that volunteered to do all the work… and has proceeded to do most of the work!
