Well, she is done, and hanging in my studio. I haven't decided on her name. I think one of my articulated animals will be included with her-probably the dog. Maybe the dog and a bird.
Her hat is made of an old sock toe. Her undersweater is made of the same sock, and her own socks are made of the same sock-just cut up in pieces to make all the different clothing parts.
I have hand knitted her mittens. Since she is about 16 inches long, they were small mittens.
I have hand sewn all her clothing other than what I mentioned above. She has vintage buttons and hooks on her clothing. She hangs from a wire that is cloth-covered under her armpits, under her coat. Her clothing is removable-but the mittens are sewn to her arms-so it's not advisable to remove her jacket-but all the buttons and hooks work. Even though she had two sides of her head-I used only this side for the front-her back has a real back of her clothing showing (not sure if I'm saying that right...)
I'm very happy with how she came out. I guess I needed a little break from doll making, but for now I am going full steam ahead and making more. I'm working on two foxes now, and a whale, and more people.
Thank you so much for taking the time to look....
