Dolls of Course!

Well another project completed. A wonderful primitive doll was sent off to Patti Culea! She is making a DVD about her dolls and people who make her dolls. Ran out of business cards for the last event so I decided to make some. Made a little doll pin and attached it to the business card. What a success. So now I am on the doll pin mode. I am traveling to North Carolina this weekend so I am making as many litte pin dolls that I can to take with me to bead! I even found a cute little teddy bear pattern from a Soft Dolls and Animals magazine from last year. The pin patterns came from an artist by Ronda Kivett. She put free pin patterns on the internet a while ago. Making and beading them. They are so cute. Make a pin pattern? Why reinvent the wheel. Ronda said I could use her little pattern and I am. Sewing in the secret place by the light of the moon.

Well the Tory Burch event was quite a success! She is the sweetest person! Gave her a doll pin too. Met Russell Simmons. My two mentors were wonderful Doreen Wright (retired Senior Vice President an CIO of Campbell Soup company. And Simon Collins Dean of Fashion at the Parsons school of design.  What a wonderful entrepenuer experience!!!! Pictures forthcoming. Tory Burch believes in women entrepeneurs and supports them with her foundation. Russell Simmons gave us a copy of his book "Super Rich"! I told my cloth doll story and it was heard! Yeah! Putting cloth dolls on the map even in the fashion world.
