Winter School Girl fox

I couldn’t wait to make something out of this lovely wool blend boucle knit. Of course it is perfect for a fox sweater!

It was pouring rain and very gloomy when I finished her up and there was no time to wait before she went into the window. I had to take photos in what were not ideal lighting conditions so these are the best I got.

She has a tin bee pin on her backpack.

Tomorrow I will post photos of the foxes in place in the window.

One more photo! Here she is, waiting for her turn to go into the window.

The fabrics in this sweet girl fox have stories. The wool I used for her body is some that I dyed and somehow, when I look at it, it seems to have a life. I bought the fabric in the dress when I was in Portland last summer. And her Liberty wool shawl is made from a shawl/scarf that I wore for years before I wore it right out. Time to turn the beautiful fabric into something new.

I made her a bag for her knitting project.

2015 round up- all the dolls!

It is time to collect all the things I’ve made in 2015 and put it all here in this one post!

I made odd amounts of specific patterns which made these mosaics a bit challenging. Also, I made a LOT less dolls than last year: 97 for 2015 versus 156 for 2014. That was kind of a bummer but I’m not going to focus on that, right?

There were 11 fish-

Next, I have to clean up the amazing mess that is my studio right now. I’d like to make it actually usable for a few non-doll projects in the next week. Also, I have to find places for all my stuff that has wandered out of my room and into the rest of the house. It’s that time of year when the house feels too small because everyone is home again. It’s going to be great!
