Meet the Girls!

Well I haven't been doing a lot of textiles lately as I've had an animated Advent calendar to get on with for our animated primary resources site www.thetreasuretree.co.uk as December is fast approaching. It's done now so I'll introduce you to the dolls I made a few weeks ago.
This is Miranda
and this is Ella


















I wanted to make their faces a little different to the norm so I've used charcoal, pastel pencil and dot of white acrylic for the highlight in the eyes and then varnished it to protect it. They are made of calico, stuffed with polyester stuffing and the hair is made from banana yarn which is beautifully soft. The clothes are a bit tattered and textiley with various fabrics, buttons, beads and lace. They are about 27" long. I rather like them and goodness knows I have enough fabric to make many more!

  2. Thank you Su. If I had arms and legs that thin I'd be thinking of having some more chocolate! x

  3. Love them, they look like fun teen dolls? I can see them dancing around the room playing music or doing some art :-} Lorraine

  6. Thanks, Siga. I might make another one. Who knows? I'm a bit of a flitter- flitting from this to that!
