Here are a few more images of the construction process for the doll that is in
the current In Stitches Vol 6! The name of the piece is "Is the War Over Yet?" and it is built on a wooden yarn spool.
Love carving stamps!
Don't forget that your image will be inverted...pay particular attention to words!!
The stuffed head pillow offers endless opportunities for embellishment!
Spool with skirt and batting wrapped around top.
Checking placement for arms. Dowel wrapped with batting.

Have a good day and make great stuff!
