STEAMPUNK ADELINE MY STEAMPUNK CHALLENGE DOLL

For my Steampunk Challenge Entry I made "Steampunk Adeline, Keeper of Time Travel". She is a very Victorian young lady who loves to travel, in time, that is! With a blink of her Robotic left eye, she can travel through time. I used Deanna Hogan's doll pattern and had fun designing her outfit. She has on a puffy sleeve blouse, a three tier overskirt with leather waistband and leather straps in the front, a petticoat made from crinkle doupioni silk, black satin pantaletts, knee high leather boots decorated with mechanical wheels, a matching parasol, and a leather steampunk hat with all the trimmings.

FOLK ART CHRISTMAS SANTA CLAUS


Folk Art Santa Claus Doll by Bethann Scott


 For my last Santa Claus of the season I made a more traditional Santa. I made him a red wool suit and stocking cap using pendleton wool. Santa is holding a Raggedy Ann doll, a Stick Pony Horse, and a 5" Nut Cracker. I think this will be the last Santa I will be able to sew.

CHRISTMAS SANTA CLAUS DOLL

Folk Art Christmas Santa Claus by Bethann Scott

                                                                  
Today I finished the second Santa Claus Make-Do Doll. His coat is made using 100% red wool. I trimmed the coat in a Whimsical Christmas Star print fabric. The tip of Santa's hat is trimmed with a Folk Art Star and I also tucked a couple of these stars into his bag.
Santa's bag has three whimsy folk art scenes... a santa claus, an angel and a heart. The bag is filled with greenery, pips, candy cane, a rocking horse, and two stars.

Siamese Gerber Diasy


While working at my sister's floral shop this week....we found a SIAMESE GERBER DAISY! How often does this happen? I grabbed it up quickly and told my sister it would be an interesting picture for my blog. My sister has owned her floral shop for the past five years and said she has never seen a siamese flower. Let me know what you think...

My first Little Red Riding Hood Folk Art Doll is done and will be listed for sale shortly. Her cape is 100% wool and lined with red satin. Her skirt is also made using wool in a lovely navy blue color.
I enjoyed taking "Little Red Riding Hood's" pictures. I thought she looked wonderful with the wintery background behind her. I spent most of the day making her a custom made cape...my own design.

Izannah Walkers Second Skin

My Izannah Walker style doll received her "second skin" today. The material is a little heavy but durable. I wasn't sure how I would attach it to her shoulder plate area, but I finally decided to "sew" it in place just under the shoulder area.  I just don't like glue. Since this is my own design....I just wasn't sure how it was done.  My hand stitching may not have been the greatest....but I did a backstitch and it did the trick! 


I painted some of the detail to her little ringletts...I'm learning :)

Making My First Izannah Walker Style Doll





It seems like there is an "Izannah Walker" doll craze out there! and I too became infactuated by this wonderful doll. I have been designing my own Izannah Walker doll pattern after several months of studying the antique dolls. I have drawn pictures and diagrams and finally decided to OPEN up my first package of Creative Paperclay and give it a try.
