Dotty ((Editing)) - Raggy Dolls





Used/Palnned Uses: My 80s Catoon BBQ Party, June 2009.
- Buying Raggy Dolls DVD, 21 June 2010.

I was lucky with this costume, I didn't have to buy anything except the wool for the wig which cost me £4.95 for a ball. Everything else was from my craft room or left overs.

The wig took the most time, cutting and stitching the wool to the cap..

** other plans include a Reject bin and 'the dark wood' scenes.

Thank you ALL for the nice comments, makes me smile :) I have a few plans for her. I'm not sure if I want to make a head or just try and do the facepaint better.. I think a head or at least a nose. I want to have a 'stuffed' body.. Generally want to make it more like a rag doll. Sort of mascot like i guess. I have a few proper photos I want taken, based off scenes in the cartoon (eg. a scene in 'the dark wood' where they are looking towards the wood) I want to make a Reject bin, it will be very large so I fit in it. I would love to get the whole team together, that would be amazing. They are beinging Raggy Dolls out of DVD (FINALLY) in June. So I think I will work on her then, ready. Maybe I'll wear her to the shop to buy the dvd hehe. :)

New bits...

I am going to make a nose from stuffed fabric.. I may make a mask covered in fabric, but no over my mouth.. I will try it but i'm not sure it will work.. I might try a balaclava (spelling) type thing... I have ideas.

Again, I want to finally make a Reject bin, and have the photo based on Episode: 'the dark wood';

I'm a bit far behind, and I didn't realise Series 4 dvd is out.. I only know 1 and 2.. Get with it ruth - yes I have been living under a rock! (actually, a hospital bed but yeah)

Really hope to make the changes very soon, and have the photos taken that I want.
If anyone wants to join me in a groupage let me know!

Felt or Wool?

Now then, on rag dolls they have woolen hair.. i was thinking maybe making it from stuffed felt..
actually no, I have answered my own question.

Wool it is!
