My first Craftster Challenge ever! I wanted to do some sort of plush item and decided to make Skully a doll.
 I used fleece for the body and head. Odds and ends for the veil and corset.




Of course she has to have her pincushion bouquet, because she is a crafter.Smiley


This challenge was loads of fun to work on.Smiley Hope you like it.Smiley

Her skin is white cloth,
and she's all sewn apart
and she has many colored pins
sticking out of her heart.
     But she knows she has a curse on her,
a curse she cannot win.
For if someone gets
too close to her,
the pins stick farther in.

The Bride of Craftster! I love her. She's great. The use of the skully is perfect and the pin cushion is brilliant.

Your doll turned out so cute!  What a great way to show some Craftster love!  The pincushion heart is a great idea and love the veil and corset.
