Bertha and Marmaduke – luxurious figures for you to sew


I’m agog over the exquisite detail in the fabric of these two divine
dolls. Handy parents, grandparents and friends can whip up a
fancy lady by the name of Bertha, or a haughty cat named Marmaduke
using this cotton/linen fabric kit by UK printmaker
Sarah Young.
Note the lovely layers of illustration in Bertha’s dress skirts, and the way the patterns in Marmaduke’s coat resemble ornate decor from the turn of last century.

Pop a weight in the bottom and use it as a door stop. Otherwise
Marmaduke and Bertha will make perfectly elegant cushions and play
things for your home. They’re the antidote to minimalism – embrace the
opulent and create sumptuous surroundings, whilst collecting
kudos for your clever handiwork!

We’re cat
people so I fancy a Marmaduke as a door stop for that nasty
laundry door that tends
to slam shut, usually just as I’ve gotten the baby to sleep. I suspect
my toddler would relocate him on a regular basis so it’s
handy that Marmaduke is multicoloured as he’d fit in anywhere
in the house.

Instructions are printed on the fabric sheet so you can sew up a
storm and have it done in no time.
Alternatively, snap one up as a project for an older child.
