One Day Workshop

Suede Dollies

Join us for a day of doll making in Dollandia!

You will learn Sunny’s techniques for painting a little girl (or boy if you prefer!) of your own. You will learn how to paint a dolly from your own imagination, how to build a simple armature and how to sew it all together. These dolls will be tiny and more adorable than you can possibly put up with!!

Supply list:

  • A piece of UltraSuede, 8” x 10” (the size is not important. You could instead bring several smaller pieces). I like a cream or off-white color, but anything that appeals to you is great. You can get this on Etsy.  If you are using some other brand, just make sure it doesn’t unravel. It has to be nonwoven to make it easy to work with.
  • Wool Felt – I like the wool or wool blend. Not the acrylic. You can also get this on Etsy.
  • Golden Fluid Acrylics: Titan Buff, Titanium White, Burnt Umber Light, Pyrole Red Light, any other colors that you like.
  • Faber-Castell Pitt Pen size XS
  • 18 gauge wire
  • Small Wire Cutter
  • Masking Tape
  • Brushes: Small Filbert, Small Liner. My very favorite brush for details is a Princeton 10/0 Filbert.
  • A small amount of stuffing
  • Needle and thread
  • Small Scissors
