|Shaker doll 13-1/2" tall|
In between working on the Civil War blocks I've been fooling around with doll making. I tried out this Shaker doll by Miriam Gourley, just to gain some courage before trying out Gail Wilson's doll. I like how her nose was shaped. I use muslin and stuffed her with polyester filling. The stuffing fork that I got from Gail is an excellent stuffing tool. The instructions that were given in Miriam's book were quite basic and minimal, on the other hand Gail's can be overwhelming. Gail says that way she ensures her dolls are made successfully.
