Oh, but she's so FULL of attitude; casting her spells and causing me deep consternation. She should be ashamed but, of course, she's not. And as a WOMAN, that's her prerogative!
I sat down to finish her a few days ago.
I layered her clothing with my own design. You can't see it in this picture but I cut her sleeves wider at the end and on a diagonal.She has a pair of pantaloons, then a skirt, then the dress part that I'd sewn the apron to. I didn't think out the process throroughly and had put her head onto her body before I'd slipped on her dress...SO....I had to slit the front and back to get it on. I stitched and glued a piece of fabric down her front so I could hide the slit.
Her collar is Tulle and she has a Black/White polka dot tie at her chin. I also tied a strip on her hat and then glued the wooden black bat above it that I'd painted, previously.
Her boots have been grubbied up with some cinnamon and 2 rusted safety pins attached for her 'buckles'.
I painted on her lashes, her mole, and those wide lips that she casts her nasty spells from.
Her hair is gray sheep's roving and her hat is made from black felt. She's 32" tall and a good 'handfull'!
I've named her Sassafrass. She's sitting on her bench in front of my China cabinet and thus far, hasn't given me any trouble.
I've got her listed in my Etsy if you want to stop by and FAVORITE her.
She took some time to make but I REALLY enjoyed putting her fabrics together.
I've listed most of my inventory again in my shop. Slowly getting back to the 'here and now'. It's been nice having some down time.
We're getting lots of rain here and I've not been able to break out the 'tools' between the heat and the wet stuff. I did manage to get these painted up.
I'll have another Giveaway soon so make sure you 'STAY TUNED'!
