So excited to share with you this Primitive Doll class. This is my first ever stitched class. We will create a super-easy primitive doll with lots of character! We will stitch our doll and then finish her off by roughly painting the face.....all on wonderful muslin.

Who this class is FOR:

anyone wanting to create their own primitive doll
those of you who like to paint and dabble in sewing
anyone with basic sewing machine skills. (this is not a class on how to set up or run a machine)
anyone who is too impatient to sew by hand...(raises hand!)
who likes to paint faces!
If you know how to sew dolls but are looking for inspiration and technique on painting faces on the dolls then come on and join in!
Who this class isn't geared towards:

anyone who already knows how to free motion stitch and make simple dolls AND Paint faces on their dolls (although this might inspire you so jump in either way)
someone who has never sewn or doesn't own a sewing machine without the capability for free motion stitching

What you'll need for the class:

FOR SEWING

a sewing machine with the ability to lower feed dogs --> and a quilting foot (or free motion foot)
this is the machine I use (it comes with a free motion or quilting foot)
cotton muslin - unbleached
any other pretty fabric you like for the back of the doll and legs
pretty trim: ribbon, flowers, lace etc
fiber fill
thread - I like black or red to stitch. (any color will be fine for the bobbin)
pencil - I use a stabilo graphite but any graphite is fine
liquid stitch - for gluing on trim/ribbon and for any lil imperfections
Fabric only scissors - these are the ones I use. cheap and good! I like having a small pair as well for the little jobs such as cutting loose threads and trimming away access fabric from your doll. This is a good set (or something similar)


FOR PAINTING the FACE and BODY

stabilo graphite
prima oil pastels or portfolio pastels (set of 24)
soft gloss gel - great for sealing and using with the pastels....as well as gluing on any trim or small things to the doll.
prima watercolor pencils - basic set. you could also use regular colored pencils. but i love how these soak into the fabric
distress ink - walnut - we will use this to add some distressing and interest to the doll.
white paint - I like a matte finish white paint but use what you have on hand
off white paint - this is good to have on hand for painting the face on your doll.
This is a great color if you want to have a darker skin toned doll. - then you can work with the colored pencils to add depth and dimension
mop brush - 1/2 white bristle (cheap and easy for painting the base coat on the doll. you'll love the scruffiness it gives you)
Dina Wakley round brushes
stamp pad - I use staz on
stamps - here and here
foam stamps
