Gossip Girls


Issue 7 of Love Patchwork and Quilting is currently dropping through subscriber's letter boxes (though not yet on the news stand), so I think it is now safe to share my skittle dolls with you.
The photo above is from the magazine, I always love the way they style things. And they do look like they are having a really good gossip!


Do you remember the 3 dolls I made for the sample swap at last summer's Fat Quarterly Retreat? I called them Liberty Skittle Dolls as I made them from Liberty tana lawn and I blogged about them here.


Love Patchwork and Quilting asked me to make the dolls as a project for them. This time I used fabrics from Circa by Jennifer Paganelli, and I substituted the crochet flower corsage for a felt one.


Of course this means you can now all make your own skittle doll, you just need to get your hands on a copy of issue 7! Which also features this stunning quilt and equally gorgeous cushion both made by lovely Susan!


If you do manage to make your own gossip girl then please send me a photo or tag me on instagram, I'm @mybearpaw.

  1. Love them all but that green one is extra adorable the way the fabric looks like Farrah Fawsett hair swooshing back in the wind!:)
