Jetzt ist sie vorbei, die #marchmeetthemaker Challenge auf Instagram.
Und ja, ich habe jeden Tag im März ein Foto und Text zu der vorgegebenen Frage gepostet.
Es hat Spass gemacht und ich war das ein oder andere mal angeregt selbst mal nachzudenken und mich mit neuen Dingen wie der Hyperlapse App oder Boomerang zu beschäftigen. :)


Wer es verpasst hat, oder es auf Insta zu unübersichtlich findet, der findet in diesem Blogpost die Zusammenfassung meiner Antworten…:


Day 1: You

Hello Kukalka

Hier ein Foto von mir, Nat (mit Puppe „Sima“ auf dem Arm). ;>


Day 2: Favourite to make

„So #marchmeetthemaker asks for „favourite to make“ today- so obviously it has to be dolls for me.
I can’t even say I love doing the big ones or the flashy or small simple ones…
I really do love making all of them equally. It’s the variety and endless possibilities they bring…“


Day 3:Worspace


„Welcome to my workspace on Day3 of #marchmeetthemaker: fortunately I have my own little studio under the roof with enough space for the dolls and my stuff & though I do work from home, if the doors closed I am at work trouly…
I am pretty organized too: on the left table space is my sewing corner, in the middle -under the window- I create and handsew the dolls, while on the right table half I draw ideas and do paperwork.“


Day 4: Tools

„Day 4 of #marchmeetthemaker prompts for „tools“.
Dollmakers tools: So honestly this is only a small amount of constantly needed and ever changing tools.
Some are quite obvious like airerasable pen, needles, thread, cutter, scissors, hemostads, iron, and different wool stuffing sticks, etc, – some are custom made like the wooden rod for making doll hair lengths -and some obviously not on this pic like my sewing machine, overlock, hemostads, etc.
Please feel free to ask if you’d like to know more about one or the other tool though..“


Day 5: Boomerang

Day 5 #marchmeetthemaker is Boomerang: stuffing doll limbs can be an exhaustive activity…


Day 6: Raw Materials

Day 6 of #marchmeetthemaker: raw materials.
I stuff my dolls with german sheep’s wool and use organic (gots) doll skin fabric.
I to this day never fail to be amazed myself about how from such simple materials a doll with sometimes such a big personality can come to live…


Day 7: How it’s made

Nat Kukalka Dolls

Day 7 of #marchmeetthemaker – „how it’s made“: although there are many seams on the dolls body that can be sewn with the machine, there are still plenty Stiches that have to be done by hand. It is truly a „handmade“ toy- Starting from rolling the wool for the head, stuffing the limbs, attaching the head to the body by handstitching (to even being able to repair the doll by hand if needed)… So many steps involved in the making of a doll done by two hands loving their busy tasks…
