craft - old school is cool?

Today we went to the Lancefield Show (about an hour north of Melbourne). It was a lovely day, and in between rides and playing with all the baby animals, we looked at the craft entries. All the usual categories were there - quilts, knits, lacework, and this ...



... hand sewn clothes for large dolls. Now, it's not my cup of tea, but at least three people (they were all different entries) love this craft. The sewing was beautiful. I love seeing new/old crafts - diversity is what makes us all go around, and old school can be cool, or at least inspiring in some way.

Hope you had a great weekend!

You know, I think I can see the appeal in sewing dolls clothes. They don't require too much fabric, they are quick to complete and the wearer never changes size during the middle of your sewing project!

Your trip to the show sounds fun!

and they do not whinge if the fabric is scratchy or slightly bunchy or anything really....the best kind of cutomer.

I think the one in the middle has been playing with the Strictly Come Dancing crew's fake tan sprayer.
