It seems like a very long time since I last showed a finished doll on my blog. Come to think of it, it seems like a long time since I actually made a doll. So much for calling myself a dollmaker!
Nevertheless, sometimes I do make a doll . . .
This doll is from a class I took with Christine Shively-Benjamin. Christine always has lots of costume ideas and tips and I came away with tons of ideas.
She showed us her method for creating shoes . . .
. . . and hats. Those curly-cue things are another trick she shared.
I’m not sure why I chose to use a Halloween theme. We had originally planned to have this class in October, which explains why I selected the fabrics in the first place. But when it was postponed to March, I could have collected another set of fabrics. Perhaps her green hair is in honor of St. Patrick!
I rejected a lot of “witchy” names as too bizarre, or too obvious, or just too too! For now I’m calling her Winnifred. Winnie the Witch is boring, though, so I guess she’ll be Freddy.
I’m on a roll now. More dolly stuff to come!
