I made this last night and finished up the arms this morning. This is for practice for a swap that is going on for the Junker Jane style of Art doll.

You can find the swap and sign up here:

This was fun.






I encourage you all to go and sign up. So much fun.

And I like the brightness of it - I like the aged ones but I think I might choose bright over aged.

Thank you ladies.

Love me some rainbow colors. Next one, body sewn will be aged because the fabric supports it.

Lovesclutter!!  She is fabulous!  I love that you used beads for her arms...what a great idea to use some leftover beads that you only have one or two of!

I can't wait for that swap if this is going to be what you make!

Actually the bead arms idea is 'borrowed' from Sharalee, from the art doll swap.

She is very nice! Happy, bright and fun! I like the bead arms, but also the feathers for hair! Hahaha, it looks so funny standing up, like my hair in the morning  Wink

Great work, Lovesclutter!

Thanks ladies. I love her, but need to go more junky. I just can't not use color. Under the feathers, she has rainbow hair. I'm looking at Pinky Boo to see if there is anything else there I'd like to borrow.

the beaded arms and wire "hands" are really cool...almost reminds me of a puffed sleeve on a dress...never saw that before--it looks very inventive and fun! how did the wire "arms" attach to the cloth body?

Top of the wire bent into another circle on both sides and then jointed with buttons on the outside as is common in dolls and poppets (where the buttons are on the inside). I just used my doll needle that goes all the way through. Pass the needle through the circle and through the button.
