Medicine Rag Doll Making

In this class we will create a unique rag doll. This doll can be for yourself or a gift, but it will be full of intention made out of a sweet meditative journey with our inner child and our imagination. Letting what is available inspire us.

Materials to make your doll:
>Fabric: At least 3 different ones. One for the skin, one for the limbs and one for the clothes)
>Needle and Thread: Try different types and choose a strong one that feels good and will go thru multiple layers of fabric. *Embroidery thread* is best for this project, whichever color(s) you choose.
>Felt and Yarn: (opcional)
>Paper (letter size) + Marker. For patterns
>Scissors
>Filling. Ideally cotton or wool or a mix, polyester as a last resort.
>Small trinkets, dried herbs, crystals, seeds…
This doll will be a sweet collaboration between you and your inner child. Do not focus on perfection but on connection. Choose material you feel connected to. Nothing has to be new, but everything should be special and healing, to YOU.
