That was the part that took a while, because I certainly didn't want to do that level of embroidery for a doll, but I also didn't want to just use a solid or print fabric.
Then the thrift store had a half price day, and I found this gorgeous green shirt with an embroidered hem and cuffs, and it called to me across the store. I think it worked out well.
As far as "thinking" that my temp job has ended, they did ask me to come back for a week at the end of September. I told them my reappearance was contingent upon how much product I could knock out between now and then. At this point, I'm going to call the admin on Friday afternoon and let her know one way or the other. Since I actually managed to get 24 owls cut, pieced and trimmed up yesterday, with only the eyes and the stuffing left, I'm feeling optimistic that I can manage to get 3 more days of office pay before the end of the month (not that I want to go back, but we're going on vacation in October, and every dollar is going to count in London).

They remind me of "It's A Small World" at Disneyworld and ...land! And just as cute.
Great idea---ethnic dolls of the world. Stating that reminds me that my mother had a Storybook Doll (from the'30's)from around the world. Great work
Just catching up on blogs and have loved these wonderful dolls, so creative, Karen.
