Finally I Can Show My Finished Piece...

I really enjoyed working on this project and am very pleased with how she turned out. She'll go up for sale in my shop when I do my update probably at the end of the month. She's 19 inches tall and completely hand sewn.

So I Did It Again...

I joined another challenge even though I haven't finished the dolls for my shop update. It's so easy to talk me into creative things, I always take on too much. There was another challenge for a new group I belong to, but I only got as far as a sketch. Anyway here's what I been up to.

It's another Every Witch Way Lane challenge. This is a shorter time frame one due at the end of July. It's Witch's Hat, Black Cat and Broomstick challenge. You can make what ever you want as long as it has those elements. I'm doing a black cat witch, maybe it's too literal but that what I felt like doing.

A very basic beginning sketch.
Working out the face details.
Sculpting and stuffing the face.

I had so much fun embroidering these eyes and actually came up with a new way to do my eyes.
Here she is stuffed and legs attached. It's super hard to see the face details since they are black on black. I hope to get better pics of her face later cause I'm loving it.
 Here's the little 3D fireplace. This will be inset in the dress. There will be a little cauldron cooking away in there too.
Since she's all black cat I decided to do bright colorful clothing. I embroidered and appliqued the boots.
The start of the apron dress. It will be embroidered and appliqued. There will be a blouse, underwear and maybe an underskirt too. Oh yeah and a witch hat and broomstick.

Got a lot done over the weekend. This doll came together fast.
Not entirely sure I like this dragon. Details this small are so hard to do.
I need to work out a cloak design that allows the front of the skirt to be shown. I may set her aside a few days and work on something else while I think about this. Other than that she's coming along pretty great. What do you think?

Friday's Worktable

Started a new felt doll. She's a mini Maleficent. I know, why do another one, right? Well I never had a chance to add the dragon to my challenge piece and I really wanted to do that. I also cut out Goldylocks too. I'll show wips after the weekend.
