The Red Nose Day Doll project has been keeping me busy in recent weeks. When Ros and I met up to chat about the idea back in October we hoped that perhaps four or five people might join in to make things with us.
Each doll will be auctioned separately with his or her respective trousseau on Ebay, beginning next Thursday, 7th March and ending on the evening of Sunday 17th March. I suspect those last few minutes may be rather nail-biting. All the money raised will go to Comic Relief.
I adore this little animation. It has something of Bagpuss about it. Feel free to post it on your blog or facebook page if you’d like to.
The most wonderful part of this project has been working together with people whose work I admire so much. I think the best analogy is the feeling of singing in a choir – SO much better than singing alone at home in the shower.
The full list of people contributing to this project is below. Ros and I cannot thank them enough. Truly, THANKYOU xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
