Traplet Publications have just released a new bookazine full of adorable stitched toys and gifts for children entitled 'Sew Playtime' and I was delighted to be asked to submit two designs for it. For the first one I knew I wanted to make a doll that was suitable for both boys and girls, so a pirate theme seemed the perfect choice.
As with all of my creations the finished dolls feature raw edge applique and upcycled fabrics. They also have a very cool retro groove going on and look the epitome of Sgt. Pepper chic circa 1967!
