Dog Days and Doll Days

Your local fabric store is probably beginning to stock wool plaid and wool crepe in rich autumn colors right about now, along with fall patterns for tailored jackets and long skirts. Here in our part of the world, though, we’ve got 100-degree temperatures as the midsummer dog days begin for real. If you’re not quite ready for serious fall sewing, consider something more whimsical–make a cloth doll for your favorite infant or child, or an art doll for yourself. It’s a great way to use up scraps, you won’t have to spend too much time with a hot steam iron, and you don’t have to worry too much about fit, precision, or colors that match.
