I no longer have the ability to hold a needle/skill necessary to embroider something, and applique just wasn't "her" -- so meet Faceless Lucy! At first it was a little weird, but now I really like that she's faceless, so let's just say that I was inspired by the Amish dolls.  Wink

She came about as a request from my tyke. I was given firm instructions that "her name will be Lucy" and she "will have pink hair and a pink skirt and a pink shirt." *sigh* gotta love a three year old's sense of color! Anyway. Later that day, Lucy was born. erm, created. No pattern, just winged it, and managed to learn a lot about 'just whipping up something' I've never made before.

Shot cotton face, arms and legs. A scrap of wool felt just big enough for the front hair and chenille fabric for the back. Pinking shears were used to make some spikes/cowlicks.

She's a bit of an exhibitionist! :wink:

I like your faceless Lucy.  If you decide that she must have a face, you could always use a sharpie.

She's definitely a leggy creature.  So cute, though.  Your little girl really has her own style.  Nice job.
