Izzy babies!

I finally got the stockinette over the clay, got them painted, got their arms and legs on and the "second skin" sewed over it all.  Never realized how labor intensive they were!  Now for clothes.  I spent yesterday watching old movies and hand-sewing a shirt for the boy out of a linen handkerchief.  I probably should move on to machine sewing, and will soon, but I love hand sewing.  It's more like sculpting with fabric...
