The Fairy and The Traveler
Textile Art Dolls by Bethann Scott
I just couldn't resist showing the difference in the size of these two dolls. The Elf/Fairy is 16" seated and the Traveler is 13" standing! Now I'll be making a small fairy doll with wings.


The Traveler style doll is now finished. I totally switched directions and changed her costume. For some reason I just wasn't satisfied with the dress. She just didn't appear to be a "Traveler". Instead I gave her a  wool plaid skirt, a cashmere wool sweater, cotton bloomers, cashmere wool socks, leather shoes and a wool scarf. I'm pleased with her look and just wish I could have finished in time for the Challenge.

Though I didn't make her in time for the challenge, I'm glad to have made a doll that stands 13 inches tall including the wood plaque.

 For her Journey, I gave her a wool scarf tied and tucked under her chin. She carries a basket and a twig for her staff.
