Rag doll by Natalie Hamade
Now that I have introduced the class let me show you some of her other design work. I had originally ask her to do this adorable rag doll as a 1 day class.....As you can see she can take the most basic of figurative forms and ad a twist of flair. She embraces color into all her designs. She had no problem saying, Let me give you something that will knock your socks off. She was right Frolic was a winner.....but I still love this!
