Here is my new doll. One of the local quilt shops, Ruby Street Quiltworks, is having a challenge this month. The goal is to create something (a quilt, bag, trim, anything!) using one or more of the beautiful ribbons they sell. I decided to make a doll and outfit her with this beautiful, embroidered ribbon.
Here is Bianca
I made her jacket reversible. Here it is with the red facing out. The reverse is a beautiful turquoise.
I love her little purse. I lined it, gave it the smallest button I own, and used a broken necklace of my Grandma's for the strap.
Without the jacket
I crackled her face and hair and added a metal rose. The face and hands are made with Creative Paperclay. She is painted with acrylics.
I got to use my new Acrylic Artist Inks to paint on her shoes and then threaded my needle and laced them up.
Showing off her little cape/jacket.
I am taking her over to Ruby Street this week. In May they will be posting all the entries.
Have a lovely week!
