In August we had a very fun workshop with Lucy Landry.
Lots and lots of Bridget dolls!
Sandy brought a wonderful highlight of our show this year; she brought The Three Kings from her denim nativity set.  The doll body patterns and costuming are entirely original, created from recycled jeans.

Shown below is the King from the East, bearing his gift of myrrh and robed in classic kimonos.

The second King has fringed sleeves and zipper embellishments on his chest piece and crown, and carries a casket of frankincense fastened with an overall buckle.
The third King has bias-swirled robes and wears a cloak crocheted with strips of denim.  The bowl holding his gift of gold is created of coiled belt loops.
