This is my "mutant" for the Loyal Mutant Swap - she combines seven of the themes my partner listed.

It was very frustrating making the doll body because of the fabric I chose, but once that was done, I had a lot of fun with her!

Her fox ears and tail were constructed from teddy bear fur.

I dyed the lace for her yukata and underthings with RIT scarlet dye, since I couldn't find my other red lace.  Roll Eyes

Her hair is hand-spun wool - first time I've made doll hair like this! I was really fun.

Her little felt skates are removable (she just doesn't stand up well without them).

Her goth yukata outfit:

My partner is currently MIA, but I really hope that she is enjoying Michiko! Thanks for looking. Cheesy

Anyone have a couple extra felting needles? I'll trade for them!

Beware the Platypirates and their tri-corner hats.

The skates are adorable! And go you, whipping out the RIT dye for two little pieces of lace. Smiley

Whatever happened to the ongoing hoopla swaps?
Time spent with cats is never wasted.
