That's a whole lot of dollies!

Let me tell you, they aren't like those potato chips! Five days and two and a-half bags of polyfil later, we have 42 comfort dolls ready for a workshop. These little ladies are going to be suitably decorated come Saturday afternoon.

Since most of the workshop attendees have little or no beading experience, the faces on these dolls were printed on fusible fabric. Didn't think they would be ready for polyclay faces and all the beading necessary to finish them properly.

We will save that for the next workshop . . .

They sure do look nice already. I hope everyone enjoys beading them. Your are smart not to overwhelm the new beaders. We want to add them to our ranks, not scare them away!

Great dolls! Wish I could be there to help.
I love what you did with the faces. Where did you get the faces to print? I'd like to try that.
