Writerly Wednesday: Dollies

So here how it works, or doesn't work as the case may be. I am going to do cloth sculptures, aka, dollies, of my characters because it sounds FUN! And like all things that I think sound FUN, require gobs of work that make it less FUN than I thought it would be. So I pull out every doll book I own, which is quite a lot because apparently I collect them, and find a pattern that might be the right basic size, except female because every doll book only sells female patterns, huge dearth of male doll patterns. Sigh. Anyway, I'm combining this stuff with my DH's workout books, because muscly men is exactly what I'm after for my entourage of Wild men, but then my daughter, we'll call her sweet potato, wants to get involved, and I think, 'practically seven, we'll have her do this black apple doll I saw on pinterest, easy peasy'. Only, sigh. Not so easy peasy when 5yr old we'll call him, atomizer, wants one too, and of course that means I'm sitting there making dolls for my adorable children all day instead of the one I wanted to make for me, MY DOLLY SATAN!!!!!!! Who is actually Saturn, but they call him Satan because he has a dramatic case of scary. At any rate, I'm still working on my dolly, and will at some point have a boy dolly pattern. On a positive not, I could market it.:)
