Spring Doll Challenge

I entered Wendy's (Ravenwood Whimzies) Spring Doll Challenge. Wendy gave us a doll pattern that she'd made up and challenged us to do something with it. I actually have 2 but one of them is a bit nekkid so she'll have to wait until she's not so x-rated!
Anyway, thought I'd show you some pics of the one I finished since the Challenge is over with today.




I painted her green and then hand painted her face. Her legs are striped with purple and orange. I modified her shoes to look like a Witch's boot. Her hat is hand made from felt with pip berries glued to it. Her hair is dyed gray wool roving. I've used 3 different fabrics for her dress and orange with black polka dots fabric for her pantaloons. She has a ratty old piece of dyed cheesecloth tied around her neck with a rusty pin and jingle bell. Her broom is a cinnamon stick with raffia and sisal. I haven't made her a tag yet and still want to make her a kitty cat to finish the look. I'll probably list her on Etsy sometime in the fall.
THANK YOU, WENDY, for issuing the challenge to us. I'm still learning, however, your pattern was super easy to use!
Take a look over at Wendy's blog to see some of the other dolls the gals have made.
Hope your having a wonderful Mother's Day. Mine has been just about perfect!
