I have been asked to make a doll for a school in NSW. A Captain Cook doll to be exact. Readers of my blog will recognise the pink wool fabric on the right. I have dyed a piece for his costume in navy blue and shocked it in hot and then cold water several times to change the feel of it. It is much stiffer now and will hold its shape nicely to represent a heavy wool look. The gold ric rac braid from my stash can be very carefuly straighten out. As payment I will be asking for a Spotlight card for the cost of the postage for the doll. My time and materials for schools I give freely.
