This is my circus poppet, Gloria, and she's a contortionist of sorts. I named her after what she reminds me of...our flag, Old Glory (and a Green Day song that I can't get out of my head - "Viva la Gloria!"). Her eyes are hand-painted and her hair is wool that I dyed with food coloring and spun on my drop spindle. I made her arms and legs blue to make it look like she was wearing a bodysuit under her little dress. Her dress is based on the easy peasy pattern, and is made of dark blue denim shot through with red metallic thread (leached dye like mad, had to wash it several times).



Her knees fit over her shoulders, but they don't stay that way...


Here she is in meditate mode: Namaste!



Thanks for looking!  Kiss
