I've been working on a new design for a little fox doll using the basic shape of my bunny and bear dolls. This is what I have so far...
His face is longer and more pointy, he has a tail and I've given him a white ruff and belly. I'm planning to make this into a sewing pattern which will hopefully be available by the end of September.
This particular fox is made from scraps from old woollen blankets and stuffed with organic corn fibre fill.
Some mushroom hanging ornaments on my work table this week. I'm trying to get some sets of these ready for Christmas.
I love it when the perfect material for what I need happens to be rubbish... like the plastic from old milk bottles.
Hi! Just letting you know I'll have two new dolls, an owl and a whale available via my online store from Wednesday 10 August, 10am (Sydney time - EDST). Best wishes, Margeaux
I've never properly introduced myself... being a bit shy is no excuse. You are all so lovely to me and I thought it was time I said hello and stopped hiding.
So hello! I'm Margeaux and I make cloth dolls and creatures. I love old things and the rain and am terrified of magpies. I am a mother to two little boys and used to be a park ranger. My dream is to one day see the Northern Lights.
It's so lovely to interact with you all. Thank you for your support and encouraging words. It really means so much to me.
Busily working on finishing three new cloth dolls by the end of the week. I'm fascinated with historical fashion at the moment...
I will have three new dolls available via my online shop, Friday 1 July from 7am Sydney time.
They are all made using fabric salvaged from old clothes, remnants etc., and are priced from AU$280 plus postage. No reserves I'm sorry...
My current fixation is this shell from a giant panda snail. It's helping me with what I'm working on right now.
My blue whale sewing pattern is finally finished and available in my Etsy shop as a PDF download. I'm so excited about this as it is one of my favourite toys to make...and they make the perfect gift for a small person. Enjoy!
I have been busy working on two new little cloth dolls and they are finally finished... a maid and a maiden. They will both be available in my online shop from 10am (Sydney time), Wednesday 23 March.
My first boy doll prototype is finally finished. There are things I like and things I'll change... I love making prototypes and that freedom of experimenting with something that doesn't have to be perfect.
There are rejected shapes, limbs, heads and ideas all over the place this week. I'm modifying, tweaking, improving and trying for curvier curves. Trying not to obsess or over think...
This little group of foxes and owls is almost ready to go into the shop (just need to finish the stitching on the two fox's ruffs). They will be available in my online shop Thursday 25th February from 10am Sydney time.
