hi there!i recieved an awsome tassle thing from gotgrey in a past swap and knew i had to use it for a doll, so i decided to make this hanging doll thing. it reminds me of the dotie dolls i see on here but usually the ones i see are fabric so i didn't know where this doll belongs. i sculpted her face with plain polymer and added the doll hair, then i sewed some ribbons and fabric together for a nice hat, and used some wire mesh stuff for artsy arms and ribbon and such, and of course the awsome tassle! i added wire mesh to make the tassle part poof out a lil, and luckily it is perfect lighting outside today! yippee! not a cloud in the sky!



so anyway, i am not sure what she is called, whether i should call it an art doll, and assemblage, or a dotee or whatnot, and i have nooo idea what to name it either! any ideas for a name for her?

i have one more tassle that matches, so of course i am planning on making another doll! not sure if i wil use the second one for hair on a doll or as another skirt or what! i guess we will find out though! i never plan anything, i just kindof see what comes out lol!

She is beautiful!  Awesome job!  You should make her a sister, out of the other tassel.

You sculpt great faces! I think she falls into the dotee category; although she's so unique I think maybe there needs to be a new word!

I knew you would make dolls out of the tassels.  Can't wait to see the other one!

Oh wow this is so lovely and such a clever way to use a tassel!  Personally I use the term "art doll" for any doll that is meant for display purposes, which this certainly is, so that would fit. But I like Teeples, too. Wink Also, her face is gorgeous, you have done a wonderful job. I hope you make her a friend out of the other tassel you have. Smiley

All we have to decide is what to craft with the time that is given to us.
