Guest blogger: Colleen Babcock of The Magic Bean
My name is Colleen from The Magic Bean and I am a face-aholic. I’ve always loved drawing faces and I suppose that is at least part of the reason that I love making cloth dolls (my primary craft obsession, but by no means, the only one). I teach cloth doll making all over Canada (where I’m from originally), the US (where I love to visit) and the UK (where I live) and everywhere I go people tell me that drawing faces scares them silly. Incidentally, I am a firm believer that drawing is not an innate talent but a learned skill that anyone can acquire with the right teacher.
However, when you don’t have a teacher at hand, you can always cheat. So when the opportunity to guest blog at one of my favourite blogs, Whipup.net, came along I decided that I would share an easy way for people to draw the profiles of their nearest and dearest and to turn those silhouettes into a set of High Profile Pillows – the cheaters way!
Download the free tutorial and pattern for these High Profile Pillows in PDF format.
So, we’ve established that I love Whipup.net. I love faces. I love drawing. But there is one more thing – I love free tutorials. So in honour of my guest post at Whipup.net, I’ve created another free tutorial for a co-ordinating pillow which you can get at my own blog, The Magic Bean. This second tutorial will arm you with another different cheaters technique to draw full body silhouettes of you and your family. Whoever said cheaters never prosper, never made my pillows.
