I work on a few projects at the same time, as paperclay needs time to dry, and I also make little things to go with my dolls sometimes. I've been working on this one for a while, and finally have her finished.
I made the carpet bag using a scrap of snow fence wood, some upholstery fabric and little tacks. The bag has deer leather handles and a very old button. It does not open and close. The doll's hands are sewn together, holding the bag between them.
She has mohair for hair and her velvet cape is sewn to her head-it can't be removed, and the rest of the clothing can't be removed as well. I used a combination of old fabric and new.
She will be for sale at my Etsy shop, with the dolls in the previous post sometime soon.
I have a huge fondness for carpet bags.....
