So I made these for the Art Doll Swap.  Cmarion was my partner and since she said she likes dark/non Disney fairy tales I thought I'd go with the one that scared the crap out of me as a kid.  Smiley
  I sketched them out on canvas and then "drew" them with free motion embroidery on the machine.  I added a little of the necessary RED with colored pencil.  I failed at making them stand on their own, but they can lean on each other quite well.  Smiley

They really are awesome.

By any chance, does Red have nuts in that basket of hers?

I just received these last night...after the post office said they could not deliver.....crazy people over there, they made me wait a whole weekend!

They are even more stunning in person. The stitching is amazing and the BBW is just plain creepy/big and bad. The subtle coloring enhances the stitching without over powering it. I keep looking at the detail and saying "mine all mine"!!!! The swap was for one doll, so one of them is an accessory! I simply love them. I will figure a way to tie them upright on my still to be finished doll shelf.

I haven't posted on the art doll swap yet as I had to work today and that limits my fun time. Y'all get on over there, the dolls are just starting to come in. Should be an awesome swap. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=432401.0#axzz2x1oOeG5f My offering in the swap has a head, but no clothes. Shame, shame.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.
