Witchy Women/ Making an OOAK Fabric Doll @ Sugarloaf 

Some of you may remember I posted about a wonderful fabric shop I found in Warwick New York this past summer - if the not click here to read it. The name of the shop is Fruition Dolls and Gifts. The owner Linda Gargano makes her fiber-filled fun shop even more enticing by hosting classes in the space.

Being the big crafter, fabric lover and halloween fan that I am, I couldn't wait to make this doll!

OOAK means one of a kind and regardless of Linda teaching us with a fabric pattern for the body and head, when each student makes fabric decisions and soft sculpture happens on the face, every one of our dolls turns out completely unique and one of a kind.

The class was incredibly pleasant with 4-5 of us students sitting in a fiber-filled haven around a wooden table. Seeing each of our efforts evolve in a few hours was incredible. Class was only two-three classes long so we did much embellishing and stuffing outside of class. Linda's expertise in fiber doll making was a wonderful treasure trove of excitement because every stitch brought the characterless face to astonishing life!
