Funny how things are...I lost my treetop angel in the fire this summer and since I forced Jacque (for those who don't know she is my mom) to rerun the treetop angel class...the original from that class was mine...anyway I decided I would make one in class also...wellllll funny...for those who don't know I taught Jacque to make dolls...sooooo when we used to work side by side she made dolls just as I did...and I love where her dolls have gone and have begged several off of her...but realized when i was putting the class up, just how much she has grown...she no longer makes dolls like me...rofl...and truly I was very impressed with all that there was to learn in the class...now I'm the first to tell you she is the paperclay QUEEN...she can do stuff that amazes me with it...but this class has more then just that...wohooo so I will be sharing my adventure of making this dolls...first of all I have never sewn one of her patterns...(well I have sewn many of any ones patterns for that matter) it just gave me a giggle, so stay tuned to the adventure...
