Quick visual on the chair....

Here is the box. The cover is the bottom of the chair. Behind you can kinda see the dowel where the top of the cloth covers, and the bottom runs under so it is a double layer.

bottom of chair:

back of chair, and better view of pincushion/footrest/ottoman:

full view of chair, including tiny pincushions. A pain to turn and stuff lol. held down by pin in center, nailed into dowel:

Excuse the mess the the dropcloth isn't covering lol. Hope this helps!

3  Likhanā the Writer, a Junker Jane Style Doll in CHALLENGE 86 ENTRIES by puamelia on: May 04, 2013 07:36:43 PM
I was on Craftster for a couple of years before discovering my love of making dolls. I usually do Poppets, but have been trying to expand in the past year into other kinds. Originally I wanted to post a Poppet for this challenge but I they all have their own posts. I don't know how I missed posting this little gal but she definitely deserves a post of her own. She was a huge challenge for me, with no pattern and in a style so different from my usual stuff.

I joined the Junker Jane Style Doll Swap this past December. Our awesome organizers LeslieHappyHeart and Susanab picked Junker Jane as our theme. My inspirational partner was Noodle-bug. From her questionnaire my doll was influenced by: "I love how junker jane's dolls have really thoughtful and interesting expressions," a love of books, book characters, of vintagey and washed out colors, and elephants (among other things).

Noodle-bug has named the little Writer Doll Likhanā, which is the Hindi word for write. You can read more about her here, where Noodle-bug has done an excellent job photographing and explaining my swap package. I think her pics came out way better.

I've never entered a challenge before, so thanks for stopping to look! Aloha, ~Su

Here she is with her pet elephant and writer's satchel:

I made her a little pleather-bound book and an envelope full of quills to keep in her satchel. There's also a bottle for ink in there somewhere and a jar of whimsies for inspiration:

Here is her "announcement card":

This is what stefaniegk sent me. It's a beautiful cushion/notion holder/thread catcher. It can also double as a pillow/scissors + knitting & crochet needles organizer/yarn ball holder. The cushion is a dark red velvet!

I was so excited, I set it up in the car. It would look great on the passenger side of the dash. Now I'll need another one for the couch, because this one looks great in the car! Thank you so much!

Closer look at pockets and thread catcher

And also, Threadoryarn received a few days back and so I'll post what I sent. Hopefully she will get a better pic some time later. This is a "Study Hard" dotee, who has a stack of books on her head, and a tail with a pencil and sharpener hanging from blue silk ribbon.

AAHHH! I am so behind! Well, I just want to say what a fantabulous gallery this is shaping up to be. I ditto what everyone else has said, Bravo!

So now I "need" tie-dyed felt. Sigh.

On to what I got in the mail!

From Threadoryarn, "paint more". Love the real paints - my children keep trying to steal it!

From FoxyBlue, "Gaia" - Live off the earth and plant your own vegetable garden, and her back view! So beautiful! I LOVE carrots! Carrot juice is my fav! (we just bought a juicer!!!)

From Sharalee, "Reduce, reuse, recycle". Sorry for the dark pic, her face is actually quite pretty. She has a pocket made of "paper" made from plastic bags ironed together, but my camera died so I didn't get a pic. She also sent extras - Thank you , I am so spoiled!!

I love your beret, that1girl... I think that will be next.
Here is my baby divine, sans ribbing, per mommy's request. Can't remember if I did 5 or 7 dc's to ruffle the edge out more.

Omg, ok, take a deep breath, here we go...

This cute little gal is so very JJ. A mere 6 tall, she popped out of the package and said helloooo! And she was named Abby, because Sally was already taken by the geckos.

And she brought out a friend

 She unfolded herself and shook out her dress and her ribbons and my daughter said l she smells like raisins! And so she was named Raisin.

But wait, there was one last gal, oh so shy, who finally blossomed and came out to play. A sweet geisha, she's so beautiful! Says my daughter, but she doesn't know any Japanese names,  and the sweet geisha was way too shy, so we all looked up something in my books and decided on Kashiwagi, and my daughter says she is an angel. Chances are we'll have to rename her something easier down the road. Wink

Thank you also for the beautiful post card and the bookmark... I shall go online and check it out! The only bad thing is trying to keep the girls away from my dolls he he!

Thank you Noodle-Bug!!! They are all so awesome! Dunno what you were worried about, I can't even decide which is my favorite! xo

2nd Divine, infant sized, using Aslan Trends Magic Garden 224, a green/multi acrylic.. I did not do the ribbing, just kept going with the same stitch, added an extra row, and did the last row with 5dcs to make it ruffle a bit.

1st divine hat, in white mystery yarn. Feels like cotton, but may be a blend, it's super soft. I added an extra row before the ribbing so I could pull it over my ears. I'm not used to any kind of cold lol.

And a pix of the yarn before I started.
