Today being Palm Sunday, I thought I'd show you my palm dolls - so called because they fit neatly into the palm of your hand. They are very small!
Both are made from calico. For the sitting one I stamped the calico with a script stamp before cutting out the pieces. For the standing one I lightly spray painted the calico after sewing up the pieces but before stuffing.
The sitting doll has a skirt and scarf made from scraps of fabric left over after cutting out the stamped calico.
The standing doll has a hat and bag which I knitted on 2mm needles. They are worked in bramble stitch. Her bag holds a few tiny balls of wool and cocktail stick knitting needles.
