Ruby Dolls

~
I heard from Sue today that she had received her Ruby Doll from me so I can now show her to you, the Ruby doll not Sue! I made my doll partly from my own dyed fabric. The arms and legs and skirt are commercial batiks.

Sue's doll for me arrived before mine made it into the post so they had time to get acquainted :o)

They are both lovely! I was sorting through a ig pile of paper earlier and happened upon the Ruby Doll pattern that I printed out ages ago.
I may just have to make one, now that I've seen yours!

I meant 'big pile of paper' of course. Although it felt pretty ig at the time....

I have a lot to catch up on your blog! Love the Ruby doll you made for Sue (those fabrics look gorgeous). And the one she made for you is lovely (love her shoes and the expression on her face).

Art swaps are great fun aren't they? And the ruby doll is a great design.

They're lovely :) Wish I'd been more in the mood to sew recently because I would love to have one of these to cherish.
