Rip Van Winkle

This is Rip Van Winkle, our doll club (The Daffodolls) in Melbourne, Florida did several storybook dolls and had a display at one of our libraries. Each of us had the book next to the doll, we were very well received by the children. I enjoyed making him, I have only been doing dolls for 2 years and I am hooked. The pattern I used was based on Sentimental Bloke by Ann Clemens, he is 22" tall when standing. I replaced the rifle with a wooden staff as I thought this is more acceptable to children.

The Firebird

From Russian folk tale to ballet to storybook, the Firebird teaches the value of freedom. By allowing her freedom, she becomes an ally in our quest for our own. Her inspiration led me to design this 21” doll from the armature out and the freedom to attempt new techniques.
