Chocoholic Doll

Standard

This is my first attempt of doll making. I made this doll for a challenge.

The interesting part is that the fabric is made from Peanut Butter cup wrappers. I sewed the wrappers to muslin, using Sulky Heat-away Stabilizer on top and bottom to stabilize the fabric. I used a zig-zag stitch to attach the wrappers to the muslin.

The dress is made with Easter Cream Egg wrappers, prepared in the same way. It was actually very easy to sew through.

The Heat-away stabilizer is a great product — much nicer than the water-soluble stabilizer. My only complaint is that it is bumpy, so if you want to draw an image on the stabilizer, it will not work for you.

Be warned. This project requires eating a lot of chocolate!
