Rags to riches

Rags to Riches…

Looks like, the passion to work with fabrics runs in the family. As we at BAJA are into manufacturing our own garments we produce lot of scraps too. Being a Green family we tend to use up the scraps.

So this ‘summer vacation makeover project’ was to make rag dolls. Ashu my teenage daughter is the one with the right ideas and she was the teacher/ instructor/ supervisor.  So in this project there were two of my kids Ashu , Esha  and their two cousin sisters ( Sithu and Shalu )

The outline of the dolls were drawn on to white cotton cloth and cut.

 

The edges were stitched , it was amazing to see how these 8 to 14 year old

stitched the dolls together .

 

Two of them stitched it and turned it inside out and the other two just hemmed it with different colored thread.

 

Scraps of fabric were shredded ( I think they enjoyed this more ) to fill up the dolls .

 

Crochet thread were used for hair, this was the most time consuming part as each hair needed to be hand stitched.

 

Also saw redheads

 

Yep it was all worth it for this …..

 

 

Now they are busy with making clothes for the doll, so the story continues …….

Signing off for now…
