PLEASE READ THE INSTRUCTIONS THROUGH TO FAMILIARISE YOURSELF BEFORE STARTING.
FACE: Use whatever you prefer such as acrylic paints, gel pens, fabric pens, coloured pencils etc - I like to use coloured pencils first to outline my design, then pens to define the details. I sometimes then use acrylic paint to highlight certain features. I also use pastel chalk for cheeks or some facial areas such as the nose/whisker area as per the featured doll.
FABRICS: Plain or patterned fabrics of your choice. A good quality medium weight fabric will give the best results. If using patterned fabrics you could use 2 or 3 which mix and match. I sometimes use different designs for various parts of the body. You may wish to only use Calico and dress the doll after.
You will need approx. 1/3 - 1/2 meter of fabric in total depending on the width. Optional: Fur fabric for the tail.
