I don't need no instructions to know how to rock.

I made this doll for my partner, LadybugsAndBumblebees, in the Spirit/Intention Doll Swap.  She listed orange and white as a favorite color combination, so I dug through my stash and picked out all of my orange fabrics.

I wanted it to be kind of scrappy, so I stitched the fabrics together by hand and left the raw edges exposed.

Her face is made with Martha Stewart air dry craft clay.  I left it white so it would go with the color theme.

The locket on her belt, and the jar in her hand contain my partner's intention written on paper.  I made her rainbow button arms because that was one of my partner's other favorite color schemes.

Thanks for inspiring this doll and swapping with me LadybugsAndBumblebees!

Oh she is so beautiful!

Use what talent you possess - the woods would be very silent if no birds sang except those that sang best
