Comfort dolls, also called healing/spirit dolls, have become my latest art challenge. I have just completed , "Dear One." My Universe Doll- The banner reads, " The Universe Totally Supports Us in Every Thought. We Choose to Think and Believe." Dressed in lavender with stars, moons, blond curls and a flowered hat she is eager to be packed with her diary. She is ready to take her journey. She is so excited about meeting her friends in Vermont. Lore C. (14 Secrets-listed) is hosting this wonderful Swap. She will assign the dolls to the awaiting artists. I am so sad to send her on this trip, but I know she is meant to be with someone else. The photo shows "Dear One," with a creative healing doll I recently received. Isn't she a doll to hug! I am so excited to have her visit with me. It makes it easier to send "Dear One" on her journey.
I made some additional comfort dolls, a Valentines Doll for my dear Aunt Rose, a Tea Doll for sweet Lore for hosting this Swap, and another purple darling for the "Comfort Doll Project" (listed). The pattern is from Carmen of the (F.A.T.) Fabric Arts Trade Yahoo Group. It is so unique.
I have infused each one with healing energy; the stitching was entwined with love, and they are filled with comforting bright light. I am eager to send them on their way.
