FOLK ART GYPSY DOLL~PEDDLER DOLL~

 I finished my Gypsy doll today with the final touches of adding the jewelry, giving her a basket full of textiles and then mounting her to her stand. I think I changed her head scarf wrap several times and played around with different fabrics and colors until I finally settled with a Crown Wrap.

ELF BOY WIP PROGRESS


I've been so busy with my other projects that this little elf boy got pushed aside. Well he's coming along. I made him a pair of britches using green velour, a cotton shirt, a black leather vest, leather hat and red Tibetan lamb's wool hair.

DOLL SKETCHES


I'm taking another online doll class by Angela Jarecki. Her name is Saika. I've never made an Asian doll and this class will go over how to capture Asian features. During the class we will do a little drawing/sketching. I don't sketch much, but I thought I would give it a try. The first lesson was to do some sketches. Here are my practice sketches....please remember I Don't Sketch very often.

I did two practice sketches

This sketch seems to be a combination of African/Asian...


This sketch captures a little more Asian...
(these were just quick practice sketches)
Now on to sew the head...front view....

DOLL WIP~ CRAZY QUILT COAT~



I've been busy making the crazy quilt coat. I was wondering how it would be accomplished. It's not done in the so called traditional way. I was going to do some free motion embroidery but after trying a few practice pieces, I decided to play it safe and try some of the decorative stitches my new sewing machine had to offer...

The coat is lined and ready to embellish...


I used a wool houndstooth fabric for the lining....

  embellishing the coat...

 The coat is almost finished. The coats are quite a time consuming task.
