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 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.
