Happy Friday All!!
Guess who arrived at my house the other day ... yep, my darling Ann Estelle doll "Bowl Full of Cherries"!!! She is just so darned cute. With her blonde bob and tiny round glasses and sweet cherry print dress. Here, take a look ...
|Ann Estelle waves Hello!|
|Isn't she darling?!|
|I like that I can position her head for different looks!|
|Her sweet embroidered apron.|
|Such a sweet face!|
|SHE SENDS YOU ALL A HUG!!!|
Now a few pix of my Snowfella. I finished him last night while watching The Voice! He gives a nod to Elizabeth for his body styling ... I made the box he stands on and his hat and scarf-from felt and some bits of hand-dyed hand woven felt from Quilting Acres. (I have to say I LOVE the smell of this wool fabric! It smells like little sheep that have had a bubble bath! Sniff sniff...) Everything else I just made little pix of and cut out the felt and hand sewed together. I stiffened his hat brim because otherwise it tended to crinkle and I didn't like how it looked. I think I'll offer him on Etsy!!!
|The hat band, top of hat and scarf are made of the nice hand made felt.|
|Side view. I punched out all the snowflakes from 2 different size punches, then glittered them.|
|Even though he has holly and berries on his hat, I decided he need a snowflake, too!|
|I tried a more egg shaped body to see how I liked it. What do you think?|
And one last thing - here's my WIP ...
|Just the face is done.|
|Head not quite finished yet.|
So, he's my weekend project - along with trying to get some other things done! I still need to change over to my winter wardrobe. It's gotten quite chilly and short sleeves just don't do it!!!! LOL
Have a wonderful weekend!!!
Until next time,
