My next project is still work in progress, but I wanted to share it with you. I am in the process of making dolls of figures in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). I want to highlight women and men who have made a mark in these fields, at the same time raise funds to support charities that have proven to be effective in helping people. I will choose the charity based on recommendations by groups like Give Well.
The dolls are made out of wool felt for the body and stuffed with wool. The face is hand embroidered and the hair is made by crocheting a mohair wig cap for each doll. The dolls do stand on their own but to make it nicer for display, I made a stand for each with one of their quotes and an image that relates to their work.
Welcome! I'm Jessica.
