Not so Ugly Dolls and Soft Sculptures Online Class

They may not be pretty, but they sure are fun.  Create your own quirky, loveable doll out of fabric and stuffing.  Create your character’s backstory.  Did they arrive by rocket ship?  Can they swim the backstroke in a pool of Kool-aide?  Do they have more eyes than hands or feet?  Inventing your character is half the fun.  Learn how to create a pattern and hand sew your new friend out of felt or fleece.  Students must be able to thread a needle independently to participate.
