Yesterday we had a school bazaar at my school and to contribute to my class’ stall I made these wooden spoon dolls and a bunch of my bohemian pom-poms. I didn’t have much time due to many piled up obligations so managed to whip up these two the night before the bazaar.
I wanted to explore more this idea when I made this doll, but sadly, running two jobs doesn’t give me much time to dedicate myself completely to my wondrous flow of ideas.
Both dolls were envisioned and made differently. The bigger is posher than the smaller, but because of her sturdy dress the smaller gets to stand on its own, while the pink doll needs a slight support. Also, I am sad for not being confident to draw their eyes so I sewed beads instead. That is something I would love to work on more.
I worked on their attire on a whim, and not being prepared for how everything might turn out – I am quite satisfied with the final result.
As I am perpetually drawn to make kids’ stuff I would love to have more time in the future to make more toys that tickle my fancy.
