Needle-sculpted Dolls

Marie Roper demonstrates her techniques for sculpting a doll’s head using stitch. Tragically, Marie died not long after recording this video – we include it here in tribute to her wondrous talents.

To work along you will need:

  • Flesh coloured cotton fabric
  • Pencil
  • Sewing machine and thread
  • Embroidery scissors
  • Polyester toy stuffing
  • Long darning needle
  • Waxed quilting thread

Approximate run time: 17 minutes

Presenter: Linda Kemshall visits Marie Roper's studio
