Flea Market Faery


Flea Market Faery
Originally uploaded by GroggyFroggy
Dressed in scraps! I made this doll form about a year ago just to try out attaching legs and arms. The arms have q-tips inside the muslin. I was also practicing sewing that little pinched nose. She's been sitting naked just waiting for me to figure out how to finish her. Finally this morning I made her a beautiful little ragged skirt and gave her her faery wings. She's wearing a crochet circle I made, also while teaching myself to crochet. lol Her body beneath the crochet is muslin that has been painted pink. She has a pretty heart bead that shows right through her little cape. She hangs from a string of vintage buttons. I am in love.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful sacred Sunday.

Patrick and I have been busy in the studio all morning. Bloody Marys and fabric scraps...wood and feathers....beads and buttons....Can life get any better?
