I had fun making a Little Bo Peep (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=44645.0), so I thought I would make more crocheted figures.  I made a sort of French Aristocrat from the olden white-powdered wig days, but I haven't starched her skirt yet so she doesn't stand up.  With the Flamenco Dancer, the gold stitching was very sturdy and because I made her underskirt of it, she didn't need to be starched to stand up.  It holds up really nice.  I have a few more ideas so I might be posting more.

Various angles...

A little close up.

The camera really doesn't highlight the color very well... It's actually much more red rather than that funny shade of pink, and the gold doesn't look spotty at all.  But I think you get the idea.

"But why don't you scream now?" Alice asked, holding her hands ready to put over her ears again.

"Why, I've done all the screaming already," said the Queen. "What would be the good of having it all over again?"

Thanks everybody!  I'm sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you all!

I'm sad to say there is no pattern for the dancer, but it is pretty easy.  I made the heads by crocheting a ball for the head, a chain for the neck, and basically the same for the rest of the body--balls and chains, with a standard circle for the skirt.  I'm not sure if you can understand what I am talking about, but perhaps if you look at the pictures while you crochet you can get the idea.  I'll try to make a tut for the next item, that will be much easier to understand!  I'm working on characters from the Wizard of Oz right now, I just made the Scarecrow and Dorothy, and I'm now doing the Lion followed by the tin man.  I'll let you know when I'm done with them.
