Shown on this page are art dolls that I stitched several years ago.
They are embroidered by hand using primarily the chain stitch. The doll shown above is the very first one I ever made. She has hand made paper beads attached for her hair (or crown).
I cut the body shapes from felt, which I then stuffed firmly and stitched shut. The embroidery was done free hand in chain stitch and each took many hours to complete.
These dolls were a lot of fun to make and the stitching was quite relaxing.
Photos below show both sides of the dolls.
