Hand Sewn Doll (Silence)
Hand-sewn doll made from heavy cotton fabric (and some thread) dyed with avocado scraps. Every part of this doll was carefully stitched by hand. No machine. I used a reinforcing stitch so that the body is nice snd secure. It’s important to me that everything I make have a tactile quality. This doll was stuffed tightly with fabric scraps, which gives it a weight that feels good in the hand.
I’ve written a bit on Instagram about my dolls and what they represent to me, but I’m leaving it vague here so that you have the opportunity to fill in your own story.
