First Doll of 2020

Phew, I managed to finish one before January is over!

Her dress is made of vintage Liberty lawn that I got from my Mom. She has a cashmere sweater and a silk bow at her ear.

I have collected many random little trinkets over the years- that is the category that I’d put that dragonfly pin into. Sometimes they find their place.

I’d like to pretend that I could work on the dolls and also have a side project but I am very bad at it! My quilt is coming along and I wish I could keep to my plan to only work on it for an hour or 2 in the evenings, but it is a big distraction. Here it is, waiting and tempting me in the morning light. (I managed to resist because I NEEDED to post something today!)

Kitty Witch

I dressed this black kitty using this witch girl as an inspiration so now they are quite the pair!

It is fun to do a different twist on the same idea.

Orange Houndstooth Kitty

Well, this kitty was a challenge. This houndstooth wool looked so perfectly kitty in the abstract but it ended up being very hard to make into a sweet-faced girl. The scale of the pattern drowned out the face details. I had to re-work it a number of times before I was satisfied.

Her coat is a nice teal-green linen- in a former life, my mom’s porch linen tablecloth. Love that.
