I know I haven’t been around in awhile, but I haven't had much free time.
I just finished up my donations for the charity, craft, silent auction which is taking place at my husbands job.
Whew! So glad that is finished!!
Here are my creations for charity….
The Bear and the Santa are my original designs.
The pumpkin head gal was adapted from a Sweet Meadows Farm pattern.
I love this little guys paper hat.
I made it from a 1930’s magazine article.
His flag was hand painted on to burlap.
It is difficult to tell in photos but he is been aged to look old and worn.
In the photos it doesn't show up too well because of the dark shade of fur.
Santa was hand formed from clay, then baked, painted and dressed.
He can sit or stand.
His beard and hair are made from old cotton quilt batting.
I love making dolls from clay but they are so time consuming!!
He took Forever to get finished.
But I am happy with how he turned out.
Lastly is my pumpkin head gal.
She is not as bright of an orange as she is appearing in the photos.
More of a brownish orange in person.
I love the droopy eyes I gave her.
Under her nose is a little creased though.
I would love to know how to make this not happen.
If any doll makers have a tip for preventing this I would be so grateful to hear.
I have selected St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital for my charity.
Also while I have here, I wanted you to know that my friend Dawn has recently opened up a blog.
