A Little Madness in the Spring Blog Challenge-1 More Week!

It’s not too late to join in the fun! Leave me a comment saying you’ll join in the fun! Include your blog link so I can find you!

I’d like to invite you all to participate in my

A Little Madness in the Spring Rag Doll Challenge!

(Not just for dollmakers, read on!)


Here’s how it works-If you want to participate, leave me a comment at the bottom of this post. Right click the banner above (or if you prefer a smaller one, at the side bar)announcing the challenge and post it on your blog linking back to Blithe and Blonde (http://www.blitheandblonde.com/) . Write a little post announcing you will be participating in our Spring challenge and encourage your readers to join in!

Download the three links provided. If you are making the cloth doll, use all three links, if you are only using the doll body as a basis for another type of project you may only need the first link…but you decide!

Doll Pattern
Doll Dress
Doll body instructions

Now comes the fun part! Take the pattern and come up with your version of this rag doll. Remember, she should have a Spring theme…that’s the only parameter besides the shape of her. If you prefer to make a cloth doll, use the pattern as your basis, but create her and accessorize/embellish her any way you like. Alternatively, you can use the pattern to create a mixed media project, or create her out of some type of assemblage or even come up with a painted version of her! It’s completely up to you and the style of art you prefer to work in.

After you’ve created your doll, take a photo of her and post it on your blog March 21st the day we celebrate the beginning of spring!

On Saturday, March 21st, I will have a link list on my blog of everyone who is participating. That way, we can all have a look at what everyone has done. I think this will be a lot of fun, won’t you play?

  11. hello I actually did post a doll. She still needs shoes but she is dressed and ready for spring. I used fabric pen and colored pencil to make her face, and her dress is made from a table cloth that I also made a swap apron from today. It has been a busy day. O and her hair is the wool from the lace edge I am making, I really did not have the time to make her but I could not help myself!
