My first doll, fromCloth and clay Dolls

Two weeks ago I became a member of Cloth and Clay Dolls- a workshop on how to
make a doll using the material paperclay.

And here is my first attempt. The workshop is about making a doll ,as they were in the late 1800. Moddeled in clay over cloth, and body done in fabrick.
I dressed my first doll in white,-she only wear her bloomers, and a little jacket over the

She just recieved her wonderfull summertime-hat, so had to try it in on, even without skirt!!!

She wears a photo of herself as child, around her nech

I think she is very satisfied with herself.
Wishing you a wonderfull monday evening, and sending you lots of

Oh wow Dorthe she is fantastic, love her dress and her beautiful hat. Hvor er du bare hurtig Og hun er super dejlig, jeg når ikke så meget da jeg er hjemmefra hver dag, og er meget træt når jeg kommer hjem, ja tvillingerne er vokset og bare så dejlige, har du kortet hendes ben ? syntes mine er meget lange.

Thank you for your lovely comments on my blog. I think this lady turned out beautifully. I especially love her hat.The lace is gorgeous.
I wanted to start mine too but I don't have any time at the moment. It will have to wait.

I love her Dorthe! She reminds me of someone, maybe one of my many Aunts. She is a cutie.
I love her little necklace and her hat is just so sweet.
You certainly did an amazing job of creating her, you really are a wonderful artist.
I'm so glad you are my friend.

I love coming here to visit.

I really love the new direction that your dolls are taking. You almost have me ready to attempt an angel, not yet but close. Now the sculpture, no way. Looks very hard. You are such a talented & unique artist. I never tire of looking at your creations. Lisa
PS I got the most amazing letter from Joanna last night. It made me cry. I know what you mean about her.

Dorthe, I really love how you painted her face. You did a great job. I made one of Jane's dolls months and months ago but never finished making her a dress. You gave your doll a darling outfit.
