TRAVELER DOLL

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.

She turned out very nicely. I like the wool. I wonder where she's going!

I love the changes you made. The wools are wonderful! What an adorable little scarf! Your Traveler Art Doll is a winner, for sure!

Thank-you Sherri and Chip Butter (Mary). Wool is my favorite fabric. Glad you like the changes.

Beth you did a wonderful job. I love her costume. The texture of wool has really given her the traveller look.
