What inspired your project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Jill Maas's Slightly Weathered Ladies Link to website or photo www.slightlyweathered ladies.com What are you most proud of? The quirkiness of the doll and the way she stands up on her own. She is quite detailed in that she has sardines in her apron pocket, a fishing rod with a fish on it, little fish earrings and a another big fish under her arm. I've made her as a surprise present for a lady who lives on the Cornish coast where there is a large fishing community, and with whom we are going to have a holiday shortly. What advice would you give someone starting this project? It all goes together a lot more easily that you would think. You would need proper tools for turning the fingers, but they are easily available on the internet. The pattern is by Jill Maas, a designer who lives in New Zealand and is very easy to follow.
