making paper dolls



Not too bad, for a quick jobbie with a cut-up cereal box! My little neighbour friend busily made clothing while I tried to get on with some work.

I recently discovered ten pages of rather atrociously dated paper doll outfits I made when I was a kid in the mid-'80s, tucked into a sketchbook I'd brought from America. I can spot a few Grace Kelly dresses mixed in there, and my obsession for anything to do with ancient Egypt. After my brief dream of becoming a fashion designer, I decided I was definitely going to be an archaeologist when I grew up, so I could race around cool-looking painted tombs while dodging Nazi looters.
