This is my first posted project (be kind) and I call it Childhood's End.  

It's an embroidered/appliqued piece and is based on a doll that has been around the block more than she has been loved.

(I got her on clearance at a thrift store because her leg was cracked and when I took off her dress I thought it was sad that she had never been played with.  I figured it would be better for her to have lived a rough life than to be rejected for having a cracked leg.)

Please let me know if I have nhot completed the submission process correctely

this is really cool: what was your process? did you have to make a NEW cloth body for the doll, or just take her apart, embroider her, and re-assemble?

very inventive!  Smiley

Make it, thrift it, mend it, or make-do without it!

Wow! That's all I can say about it. Wow!

I hope you share more of your art! I love this and I agree that it's sad she was never played with. I think you have redeemed her!

I just met you and this is crazy...I'll share my world, share yours maybe? And the loritab10 thing? It's just a pharmacist's joke.

I love it when things inspire at the thrift store!  She has a great home now.  She was lucky enough to find a "tattoo artist" Wink

Would love to swap for art of my fur babies
