I made some clay lips from Sculpey clay for the doll.
I was pleased with the way the lips looked but not with the way they looked on the doll.
They were not laying flat against the cloth.
I decided I would stitch some cloth lips to the doll…..
I decided to make her a clay heart….
I like her legs….
and finally, smaller clay lips that fit on the fabric nicely.
I know she is a little “wacky” but, I think it is kind of fun that her eyes are buttons
that are made from nuts, and her hair is floral wire and her lips
are clay. The dress fabric is a Batik.
She is approx. 27″ long and she can hang on the wall…
Update: the first batch of Christmas postcards went out in the mail this week.
Mr. Postman was telling me how he has seen unusual things in the mail…like a painted coconut.
We laughed about it but, he was intrigued with my hand stitched postcards.
It was really inexpensive to mail them and when I think about how little
fabric it took to make them the only thing it really cost was my time.
