I thought I would try something a little different. I wanted to make a sweet little fairy but with frog legs. I also wanted to make a diorama to pose her for her photos.

 I made her a diorama that would include a water feature....after all she is part frog.


She also went through a few costume changes and hairstyles before I decided to give her the bluish green crop top. It never ceases to amaze me how different a doll can look with different clothes, colors and hair styles. 

In the end I went with a blue-green crop top and an up-do.

Cloth Fairy Doll

During the month of February I was busy making a cloth fairy doll. Her bright rich colors in her costume remind me of the Purple Tiger Lily (which should be her title I suppose).


Here are a few Works In Progress photos:

Her sweet heart style bodice is made of dupioni silk and embellished with hand picot beading with glass seed beads along the top

 The skirt is made of a sheer organza like fabric with silk overlay that was embroidered  in place along with glass seed beads. Quite time consuming but worth the effort.

. I gave her a pair of purple glittery tights and of course a pair of fairy slippers with free motion embroidery stitching.

The wings were made with Angelina Film and look completely different depending on the background color.

A Christmas Angel

It was nice to make an Angel for Christmas using a purchased pattern. I bought the pattern a few years ago from Arley Berryhill, entitled "Hark, the Angel" and set it aside. As I was organizing my studio I found her tucked away in a Christmas binder. So glad I found the pattern and took the time to make her. 

I used cotton for the body and did a cloth overlay before adding color to the face. First time making a doll with closed eyes. I enjoyed selecting the fabrics from satin, chiffon,  and silk in golds and red.

Dupioni silk was chosen for her wings. The wing pattern is nicely quilted.

Though there was no bloomer pattern, I made her a pair. Somewhat a shame they won't be seen.

 She wears a red glitter satin turban that is embellished with fancy trims.

All dressed and ready to play the brass French Horn for the great announcement.

Happy Halloween

It's October 31st and it's time for Halloween and today I'm sharing a doll I created a few years ago. She's already sold but I hope this year brings more creations like her and her crow.

With summer coming to an end I'm back in the Stitch Fiddler Studio working on a Pumpkin Man. The summer months are filled with gardening, planting, cycling and just enjoying nature.

 I made a wire armature, covered with yarn and started adding bits of batting to build up his body. I would say that most of the time goes into building up the doll's body. 

                                                                               The Fun is adding the color and bringing the art doll to life.

I'm excited to say that I finished the dolls last night. I began working on these dolls quite awhile ago but they were set aside for other projects. It's so nice to complete this project. 

One little detail I knew I needed was some doll food. After all, Red Riding Hood couldn't go to Grandma's House empty handed. I used Fimo clay to make, or shall I say bake, bread to put in her basket. The photo is how it looks before it went into the oven.

The over dress laces up the front and the eyelets were hand stitched. 
I made her cape using red velvet and it's lined.
