Soft Skeletons

Soft skeletons hand sewn

Remember HGTV’s show “Crafters Coast to Coast”? I loved that show! In an episode* in 2005, Andrew Knipe showed us how to make skeleton dolls out of old dish towels. I made one or two out of towels (I still have the first one) and quickly moved to scrap fabric, cloth napkins or t-shirts. I hadn’t realized that I’ve been making these skeleton dolls for 15 years. Always about this time of year. Well, actually, way before Halloween so that I can sell them or give a gifts. I sometimes make two or ten.
