So, this is Faye!  She lives in the forest, watching from her trees.  She's friendly, but very shy, and dresses to blend in to her wooded background.  I got her to come out of hiding for long enough to take some pictures, though.  Smiley

I made Faye a while ago, but never got around to posting her.  I used a variety of patterns for her, because I wanted her legs and fingers to be disproportionately long.  Her hair is from a tiny packet of felting wool.  Her face was done mostly in colored pencils, with a little bit of fabric marker--which started to bleed all over the fabric!  The details were hard to get in the pictures, though, because it isn't very dark.

Thanks for looking!  Smiley

She is so pretty! I love her long legs and legwarmers. The colors you used for her face are gorgeous and make her look very ephemeral. The overall effect of her attire and form is just charming!

I have a little set of finger turning tools--there is no way I could have done it without them!  And it was still pretty tough.  There was a lot of bad language involved.   Cheesy   I used pipe cleaners in them so that I could pose them.  Smiley

I use a drinking straw and the blunt end of a wood bar-b-que skewer. It makes turning them EASY!

Great doll. I love all the details of her outfit. Especially those shoes.
