My four-year-old daughter and I made some clothespin dolls together. I’ve had the supplies in my stash for years, surprising no one.
- Fabric swatches
- White glue
- Glitter glue
The swatches were from an estate sale of a fabric designer. (I even found some painted swatches that were later printed into fabric. Very pre-computer.)
A fabric was selected, then a dress-sized swatch was cut.
A face was drawn in marker, a little glue was added to the body, then a dress was wrapped around the form. A ribbon sash to keep it in place was tied and trimmed.
Pipe-cleaner hair was formed, snipped, then glued in place.
A hair bow and glitter-glue embellishment finish the look.
So that’s the clothespin-ladies look for Spring 2013.
