I started this doll this morning. I went to bed thinking of getting up to make a doll.
This is a napkin I bought at Art on a Mission, which has closed now, sadly. It was a thrift and art store whose profits went to the Rescue Mission. I loved shopping there.
The napkin is from a hotel and is really thick and sturdy.
I drew and inked the face on some canvas and stitched it to the doll.
Then I had an idea to use an Annie Oakleaves pattern I bought a while back. Remember when I told you that if you use a heat transfer pencil, you need to be sure and reverse the image?
I forgot. tee hee But I decided not to worry about it. I figured I'd just put something else over the writing.
I stitched this two or three different times and didn't like it. Then I beaded it and didn't like it. So after ripping the stitches out for the fourth time, I painted over the whole thing and decided I would collage it.
So now it's drying. I have no idea where it's going but it sure is fun.
Isn't Annie Oakleaves stuff cute?
