Year-long Round Robin/Bag Dolls

rr03_dee1.jpg (91049 bytes) Club members have enjoyed several on-going projects known as Bag Dolls (a.k.a. Round Robin Dolls) over the past couple of years.  Each activity has its own set of guidelines or requirements.  This time, each member designed a torso.  This torso went into a identifiable bag, and during the course of the year, fellow dollmakers added something to the doll (also of original design).   No particular order was specified, and journals were kept throughout the dolls' journeys.  Finally, the completed dolls were revealed to their originators.  The results were fabulous!

Bendi Doll Challenge
January, 2003

bendi_dee1.jpg (75890 bytes) Other clubs have participated in Bendi doll challenges, and we thought we'd give it a try.  Bendi dolls are very simple muslin pancake dolls with wire armature.  They have long legs and are about 14 inches tall.   They come with two small black beads for eyes.
