New doll and fun with paper

Saturday, May 9th, 2015

I’ve been working on a new doll that I’ll be teaching later this year.  Her working name is Lady Jennifer.  Even though some of her “parts” don’t seem in the “lady” theme I think I’ll stick with the name.  The photo of the skirt shows a different doll body.  I didn’t have Lady Jennifer’s body done when I took a break to make the skirt.  Soon I’ll have the whole body done and I’ll show her here.

From okay to terrific

In finishing Laurelin, the doll I’ll be teaching on the February 2013 doll making cruise I made a head piece. It was okay, but not exactly what I wanted.
I really wanted a beaded head piece and worked on a couple. I had purchased the wrong size Swarovski pearls a year ago. Decided I needed to use them in the design. Here’s how she looks with her new “crown”.
