so one of the first times when i met my now hubby, he showed me a Gris Grimly book and i fell in love, we now own almost all of his books and i have drawn some of his pics myself and felt the urge to make one outta felt myself! so here is my felt doll version of Gris Grimlys Miss Muffet!





this is a close up of her face, i love the little button on her dress, in the book it is just a plain white button, but i thought this was cuter!


this is a image from the book so you can see what she looks like Smiley


I tried to make her shoes has accurate as possible, i like how they turned out




Her skirt was not full enough so i had to add a little more fluff and added some tulle




Here is the story from the book...

Little Miss Muffet, a wicked child,
had manners that were crude and wild.
She would scream, curse, spit and swear,
she said things children wouldnt dare.

To other classmates, she would be cruel,
and so she made no friends at school.

Here you see why creatures feared
the girl when she would venture near.

When Ma and Pa could take no more,
they opend up the cellar door.
They tossed her down rhe stairs and then
they never let her out again
she ate naught but curds and whey
that was handed through a slot each day.
The spiders crawling through her hair
were all the friends she had down there
All alone she wept and cried
and stayed in the cellar til she died
- Gris Grimly "wicked nursery rhymes"

Hope you like! i had so much fun making her and plan to make more! Smiley

No, I like to rock n' roll all night and "part" of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1 till 3.

I love her!  And now that you've added a pic from the book, what a perfect job!!!  I mean, I thought she was super cute before, but I didn't know what she was supposed to look like.  Now, I see!  You did wonderfully, and she's just perfect looking!  Smiley
