Nothing much to show

I haven't done much after my doll. I am at present trying to design another one but it takes time to get the drawings according to what you want and then test it. This time I might ask some of you ladies to test the pattern for me. I was getting bored so I thought I would try out the silk fusion method but use my silk hankies instead. I followed the tutorial which is in Joggles. Even though I didn't have the exact materials, I think it has turned out ok. I added a few strands of angelina fibres inbetween layers, which gives it a nice touch. I could do some free motion on it to make it more eye catching and I think I will dye it a bit more to make it pop next time.
The trapunto face I think is a disaster as far as I am concerned. I tried to paint it last night. I must have been tired I think. Everything went wrong with it. I just don't like it so I am not going to show it here I don't want you to have nightmares LOL!


  1. Hi Shashi,
    I have sent you an email on the email address in the cloth doll directory. perhaps we could speak on the phone. I love your work. I find getting the pattern right the hardest.I keep changing them. sorry about the trapunto face I thought that it was good. we are our own worst critics!!

  2. coucou Shashi, ce n'est pas grave tu sais.. tu fais toujours de jolies choses!!!
    Gros gros bisous.

  3. This is lovely Shashi, I have been thinking of trying the silk fusion sometime too, but hard to keep up with all this new stuff and techniques. Sorry about your trupunto face but maybe try one more time?

  4. Wow! That is so beautiful. It looks like a fairy's bridal veil. I wish I were a fairy just to get married with it! LOL

    I am sorry about the trapunto mishap... That is bound to happen when one experiments as you do. I'm sure you'll be much happier with your next try.

    Take care my friend! Hugs and bisous.

  5. First of all, Lil' Shashi, NOTHING you make would give ANYONE nightmares! Your pieces are BEAUTIFUL! I really love the soft colors in your silk fusion! They're very 'misty' and - to ME - perfect as is! As for your Trapunto face, it looks GREAT! I agree with Kerry, if YOU don't think so, just try it again! I bet it will be successful!

  6. Coucou Shashi,
    Tu vas mieux?
    je te fais plein de gros bisous.
    And Flo!!!

  7. Ah! vous avez bien ri avec Maman au téléphone!!!
    allez, vite à la Gym!!
    Gros gros bisous ma Shashinette.

  8. Oh how pretty! Can't wait to see what you use it for.
