Betty's HEAD is without a doubt the most interesting part of the vintage doll pattern I have been working on. The head is made of a butterfly-shaped "pillow" which constitutes the face, and a completely separate "head back" which is sewn on separately by hand. That way, the face is flat and can lie on Betty's shoulders, and the back of the head will be round.
This past weekend, I had the privilege of taking a class with Deanna Hogan. What a treat it was, and what an absolutely inspiring artist she is.I learned so much and I enjoyed myself more than I have in ages. Deanna is a fine teacher and she has incredible patience. No wonder her dolls are so beautiful.
