Razz-fl

Razz-cu

This little guy is a cloth doll, with wired arms and legs/feet and is self standing. Razzbelly Blue, or just Razz, has a tail, furry hair, and detailed clothing that fits his tiny frame.  This will be a most fun class looking for treasures to put in Razz’s hip pouch… He is a collector!

In order to make this an enjoyable 1 day class and finish our dolls by the end of the day, PREWORK MUST BE DONE if you are not planning on purchasing a doll blank made by me. Finishing kits that include all the fabrics and faux fur hair will also be available for purchase in class.
