I’ve been working on a new doll. I haven’t gotten very far as I’ve been trying to get a certain head shape in cloth. I’ve done several versions making little changes to each successive model.
I partially needle sculpted one – it helps to round out the pointy chin.
I have one more ready to stuff. I’m hoping it’s the one!
This is a fused applique I recently finished for the Out of the Box colour challenge.
It is from a photograph I took of a fawn that, with its mother regularly visited my cottage in Calabogie. The deer are quite used to humans and don’t run off as long as there is a bush or a tree (and sometimes just a long piece of lumber) between you and them and you don’t get too close.
I used machine stitches on the tree trunk and branches for shading then coloured between the stitches using Derwent Inktense Blocks. The leaf detail is hand embroidered.
