Here are a couple of sewing dolls my mother made 30 years ago. I have kept them on the sewing machine. The taller old lady is actually made from a Joy liquid soap bottle, using wire hangar, sewing parts such as thread, measuring tape, etc. and of course doll parts.
The smaller little lady has an inside base of sand. She is a pin cushion.
I have made several dolls myself which is unusual for a man. I used to watch my grandmother sew for hours on end, she was an extremely talented seamstress and I learned much from her.
Unfortunately my dolls are packed away in boxes unreachable at the moment so no pics right now.
It is a fun and a very relaxing hobby.

Suzi, I am struggling with a little baby jacket and you have done an amazing job with that blanket! Your son will love it on Christmas morning!

I let Deelady talk me into posting these. Let me say that they in no way compare to the wonderful creations I have seen in this thread. My God given talent is drawing and when I was younger, I always wanted to be a book or album illustrator. Dee happened to see my drawings and said I should post them. I have a somewhat demented sense in my imagination and so most of the things I draw are not normal. I do have a thing for eyes. Not sure why....

One of my favs that took me several days to complete.

150 Gallon Fish Tank Project

Ok... it's Dee's fault!!! Here is my 150g fish tank that I have not completed yet, but it is close!!!

I am customizing this tank with a sump, wet/dry filter, built in UGJ (under gravel jets) and background made of foam, concrete, and cement stain.

I don't have recent pics, but the entire background is covered... I just need to touch up and add highlights to the cement. Then stand it up and plumb it!

Talking

yay you posted them!!
I really think you should do something with this!! And I don't see demented I see someone who thinks outside of the box and follows her creativity!! You should start playing with this again and see what comes out of that pen of yours!!
It may be different, but I still see beauty! Thanks for posting it Sattie!!

Cool tank TG... my Dh has a 150 gallon reef aquarium... there's some pics of it in my profile.

Here's the long-awaited turkey.

I didn't want google eyes but I couldn't find the little black half beads.
