I have been busily designing a special art doll. I will give you snippets of information and pictures in the progress of my adventure. It is a character you all know and love and here is where it is so far developing like a baby ...
You can see the head, torso and arms. One arm has been stuffed, jointed and detailed. The other arm is in its initial state without any stuffing or detail work.
Here is the torso and head ... poor little naked thing!
This is a closeup of the bottom seam on the torso... sort of folded like an envelope and stitched.
This shows the detail of the stitches I used in the first step of attaching the head to the torso. I use button thread and try to criss-cross the stitching, going around the neck area at least twice.
This shows the welting detail of the character's hand. The figure is wearing gloves.
So that's it so far ... Look like anyone you know? (Tee-hee)
To be continued ....
