a pumpkin doll.…
It is kind of hard to see but, I love the way her face turned
out “grandmotherly”. She has this warm, endearing face.
(well, at least I think so.)
I wanted to create a “Santos” or angel doll that I had seen and I was using a pattern
I bought many years ago to try and re-create the doll I wanted….
the company is no longer in business and this pattern was created by
I have made several of these over the years as gifts but, never kept one for
myself and I decided to re-do the angel doll into the pumpkin doll.
She is one tall girl….just about 30″.
My first attempt at onion skin dye. I did not have nearly enough onion skins but, I will say
that the water was a lovely orange and I decided to throw a touch of tumeric in it,
hence the yellow-ish color. I will use this piece on the skirt of the dress for the pumpkin doll
I do not think I shared my fun find…this lovely hand painted crochet hook carved from bamboo.
The original price for this little leopard lovely was $30 but, I got it for a mere $5. My favorite
yarn store is no longer carrying them so they priced them to sell right away. Yay me!
I will be working on the doll dress and spirit roots today.
Hope you have a lovely day filled with family and love…
