Circles

I finished this doll a little while ago.  She is a version of the Tea Bags doll you can see here.  I didn’t post it as I was busy working on things for the Almonte Fibrefest which was last weekend and Calabogie Artsfest which is coming up on October 15 & 16.

I named her Circles because her jacket is  a circle and because of the pattern in her dress.  I didn’t have any lace for the bottom of the dress so instead of making an 80 Km round trip to the nearest store I made some using free-motion embroidery and built-in stitches on my sewing machine on water soluble stabilizer. It took longer than the trip to the store but I’m pleased with the result.
