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.
The face is needle sculpted and painted with chalk pastels.
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!
