Hi All,
I've got a new CANDLESTICK DIVA doll for the new year:

I made this doll for a class I'm teaching at the end of January. I'm going to Houston, TX to meet with the lovely ladies of the "Material Girls" doll club. And, this will be the class sample.

So, I hope they all do their homework:

They will have to supply their candlestick (wood or resin). And, they have to sew and stuff the torso, head, and arms; and sew the hands (I will show them how to do the armature and stuffing it in class.) Plus, they have to stitch the bodice and sleeves (optional).

This class will focus on mostly the face and hands, so we won't have time to do any sewing in class. The second day, we'll focus on some embellishing techniques for the costume.

In the next post, I hope to have photos of the dolls from the class!

Lovely Arley. I just finished a candlestick Diva as well but I made her as the Queen of Hearts for a doll challenge from our doll club (Feb). I will send you photos.
