Hi everyone,

I recently made two hippies as I found a couple of psychedelic-looking fat-quarters that I thought would make groovy outfits (I am soooo addicted to fat quarters that its not even funny!!) I'm not so used to using bright and bold colours, but I really like the way that they turned out, so I thought I would share them with you. The blonde one is called Willow Warmtears and the brunette is Astrid Fields!

Those are awesome! I love the fact that the thickness and texture of Willow's hair makes it look like she has dreads, like a true hippie. Cheesy Their outfits are gorgeous too~

Thank you everyone!

Hehe these are so groovy! What is willows hair made out of, and how did you make the limbs so thin?

Willow's hair is made out of two different kinds of wool - I thought that they looked quite hippy-ish when I put them together! The limbs are just made out of cotton which I drew the leg shape onto and then sewed, turned and stuffed. I do need my trusty hemostats to help me turn and stuff though...I'd be lost without them! Cheesy xx
