Textiles students are finishing up their hand made ugly doll or “softie.” Each soft sculpture has a unique design and is hand sewn. They will be displayed in the gallery with hand written character descriptions soon! What is a softie? Softies are huggable art! Also called soft sculpture, plush, or textile art, this kind of art is soft to the touch and made from any kind of fabric. “Ugly doll” is also a specific brand that has been marketed. The best part of this project is that they are supposed to be ugly. Crooked smile? Uneven circle? It’s all good! It just adds to the charm.
