Art of Christmas with Lesley Riley

I made these two "spun cotton" ornaments in Lesley Riley's "Art of Christmas" class at Art & Soul. This is the first time I made dolls like these and I'm hooked. I finally learned how to make a doll armature and wrap it with "spun cotton". The dressing was easy, too and required minimal hand stitching. We only had 7 students in this class, so it was almost like taking a class from Lesley one-on-one. It was so fun and relaxing. Lesley is so nice and approachable. I wish I could join her for Art & Soul in Italy! Anyone want to sponsor my trip to Italy? heehee
