She's faceless, but she still watches over my craft haven. After all, she's a witch. Made from an old paintbrush and a rather uninspiring doll body she now has painted, but laced up boots. She's decked out with bloomers, an old lace petticoat and a scrappy witch skirt. Keys hang from her zipper belt and she holds knitting needles to ward off evil. The feathers are just vanity! Don't cross my craft room threshold with bad thoughts!!

And I made this for me, just me. She's hanging on my wall and I smile every time I see her. I may add a face someday, but then again. Maybe not.

She'd make anybody smile.   Cheesy  Good for you, making something just for yourself.  Without a face, she reminds me of one of those ancient, blind-folded oracles.

I have boxes of vintage piano music.  Some as old as 1890's!  PM me if you'd like some!

What a great way to use up some scraps! She's great - now I want a little craft witch to watch over me. Smiley

It's hardly completely original....I got the main idea from these boards in the first place. So steal away, she will be yours with your creativity! I can't wait to see what you come up with....mine took some time to create and I don't think she is done yet.

She is lovely. She should keep scary things at a far distance. You are a lucky lady to have such a one staying in your space.

Thank you. I look at her every day, she's on a shelf just as I walk in the craft room.
