"LadybugsAndBumblebees" What a cute intention doll she is such a happy doll. The little heart & butterfly are darling. The extras are cool!! Love that crochet bag!
Well "P_E_S_T" is very busy so I'll post pics of my doll I made her! One of her themes was "Woman" so I went with that! I used the pattern by "Nellie's Needles" I really like this pattern. I put interfacing on it. I also used some of the quotes by "Siverravenwolf.files.wordpress.com" Spirit Dolls. This is the quote I wrote all around the the doll on the edge:
"I conjure thee a creature of cloth a herb so that you will be for me a talisman for wealth and good fortume."
I chanted while I was making her. She has cinnamon & vanilla inside her. I hand sewn her & when I turned her it just came together really well. I put strength in her & her shape signifying Birth & time. I made her breasts & belly from pieces of fabric wrap round & around & then put in a circle. I'm 5 yr. cancer survivor. I put the infinity sign on her belly contains the birth of the universe. Wrap wire all around her with beads. 3 things were my grandmother's, the lace that's her skirt, her wrap a handkerchief & her tassel on her head it was on top of my grandmother's sewing basket & had came off. She has a chain around her waist with charms. On one of the scrolls I put "I AM WOMAN HEAR ME ROAR" She gave me strength and healing & so much more! I hope it does the same to you to Jolene.
This is what she looked like before everything else I put on her! I put the gold speckle tiny ribbon all over her. I was going to use that face but I didn't like it so I change to the sculpted one.
She has a scroll on her breast & one on her arm & she a crystal & a bottle of pearls & a butterfly pin.
This her back with another scroll.
Here she is up close with her scroll & eucalyptus twig. Her hair has the tassel of my grandmother's & a piece of lace around her face with sequins. Her hair is eyelash I think it's called yarn.
Thanks for letting me make this for you Jolene. I had so much fun! I for sure will want to do another one.
Thanks to you Wendie for such a inspiring theme & for organizing this swap!! All you crafters made amazing Intention dolls, I love all of them!!
