I was in the The Art Doll Swap not to long ago. It's way off what I usualy do. I do more Rag dolls or Poppets.
So this is what I did, my partner didn't care to much what I did, she said just have fun so I did. Her body is fabric & a sculpted face. From there it went a little wild.
I made her hair from colored pipe cleaners sewed them on. Her 1 eye is a necklace fastner & the other eye is a tiny flower I glued in & a bead for her lips. I made a necklace out of beads & another one with just jute & a charm.
Her boobs are washers & then crocheted with the jute & sewn on her body & I made a chain for to tie in the back.
No legs I made a wood platform for her & I did put a wood screwer in her body cut it off where I wanted it & it fits in the wood platform.
Then I made a screen skirt folded on top & made a sleeve to put a hemp string through it. But I still thought it needed something so I embroidery different things on it & some buttons for flowers & a old necklace of mine for a belt. I finished it off & sewn a pretty ribbon on the botton of the skirt.  I had so much fun making this I would do again for sure. Thanks for looking.







Sorry the pics are a little fuzzy. So I hope you like her, I know she's a little wacky, but I loved making her.

I love your doll. I'm not a doll person (even as a little girl, I wasn't), but yours is so exciting with your use of color, texture and design. Great job.

As the lucky recipient of 'Pinka Dot' you would not believe how awesome she is. Sharalee you got great pics. I housecleaned all day yesterday and still cannot find that camera. I love these pics. Everywhere you look, you just say to yourself, Wow, man, just WOW. I love her and was so lucky to have you as my partner.

The construction and the stand are perfect to so I don't have to hang her up (lol).
