Our doll club's first swap!

On Saturday we had our doll club meeting. The ladies brought some lovely dolls to show and tell. We have such a talented and enthuciastic group.We had a wonderful time even though I could only stay for a short time. One of our members showed us to do Marbling with shaving cream on fabric. It is amazingly a very simple method that  gets some wonderful results.

Our doll club was started only last year  and we had our first swap of pin dolls. Sorry the pictures just wouldn't turn the right way round so you will have to look at it sidesways lol! Aren't they all lovely. We had a choice of free interenet patterns to choose from so we chose what we wanted to and made them up. Mine is the little orange elephant. I got the grey elephant in the swap.
Our next project is to do a round robin and I am looking forward to that. It will be great fun.


  1. You have some very talented dollmakers in your club, Shashi! But no more talented than you, my friend!

    I joined a local club and it always seemed to be annoying or trouble for them to show up ..nobody wanted to do the dolls we decided upon...or ...well, there were too many excuses and not enough fun... it fell apart needless to say.
