Pippijoe Coin Purse and Cloth Dolls

Back again .... first up here is a coin purse made up in some great Pippijoe fabric purchased some time ago..... this is for my neice .....

Needless to say this is a great little quick project that uses minimal fabric. I interfaced with heavy weight woven interfacing and used lightweight pellon as well. Add a little zipper pull and voila!

Next up are some cloth dolls .... I first made this little sweetie many years ago when I worked at Warners Bay High School - that school was a major influence on me to get back into sewing after working in Nutrition for many years at Newcastle Uni. The Home Ec dept there was very vibrant - and still is!! As well as teaching the Mandatory Technology subjects we taught Child Studies and Stage 5 Textiles (Yrs 9 and 10). Anyway, this doll was a Yr 8 Technology project - the kids really enjoyed making the calico doll and then designing their own little outfits.

This one is more recent - using Simplicity 2729. She was also great fun to make - and great for using up leftover fabric that you just can't bear to throw away ... the hair is the fun part - choosing some yarn, stitching it together, and then on the head and then ...styling!

Sorry to be a little rude - but I HAD to show you her panties!!
Best friends!
