Today our group Jan Horrox Clothdoll Makers Group on Face Book launched a challenge to make a Portrait Doll. I started it off with a self portrait doll - more pictures are on the group intro in a pinned post.

it MAY work. I am hoping a lot of our 1000K members will join in this challenge and make their own portrait doll of a family member or well known person - historical or present day. Below are some pictures of my self portrait doll as well as the drawing I made of my selfie as well as the cloth head with sketched face.
I have used parts of my own clothing to make the garments. The tunic is made from a piece of felted knitwear and the jeans from an old denim shirt. The long cardi is made from a short cardi.
This doll is a simple shaped body with straight legs, which has a wire from the feet into the head. The arms are jointed on at the shoulders so there is some movement.
I am really looking forward to seeing what might be produced by our members.
