For the past few months I have been working on a series of 7” elves. They have long Elvin ears, little round tummies, short legs and arms and separate fingers, with a new way of wiring them. Their faces are adult faces but their bodies look child-like.
They look cute naked but I am busy dressing a litter of 9 of them. As I complete them I will show their photos here.
I will be teaching these new dolls for the first time at a two-day class the weekend of April 17th at the City Quilter in Manhattan. There is a waiting list of 8 already so I have told the owner I would be happy to do a second class in May, I have the two middle weekends open. Have not heard yet but if you are interested call the shop (212-807-0390) and ask for Nancy. The shop is located at 133 W 25th St. (between 6th and 7th).

Here’s a sequence of Kasi getting her arms attached. They had to be done after the sleeves were put on them in order to fit her top.
