I taught this weekend at AFICC and had a wonderful time with some great Dollmaker's! There was an anthropomorphic challenge and the teachers are encourages to enter so I created The Fairies New Shoes. Lots of freemotion and machine embroidery. She was chosen People's Choice! I am thrilled! Here are some pics.

|Book open to first pages. They overlap a bit in the center since they are 4" wide and the book is 7".|
Pages open showing the two page orientations. I attached pieces of lace to the spine side of the pages then attached the lace to the spine.
Spine with buttons as decoration. They are sewed along the same lines as the lace was attached.
View looking down into the book.

I made this doll as a gift to a dear friend who wrote a fabulous article for Art Doll Quarterly. She is seated on a Mushroom, holds a fairy dress on a hanger being admired by a little Fairy Friend who is saying OOOOH! is that mine? about the new dress Colleen is holding. Colleen is wearing her fav outfit - a striped vest, lacy flowey blouse, frayed jeans, over the shoulder bag, lots of funky jewelry and her laceup sandles and ankle bracelets. She is created from my Style of her Own pattern with a cloth over clay over cloth face.

Recently attended a quilt show in PA with some friends and found some interesting animal batik scraps for about $1 each so though I would make a new doll around them. This dol, the Lion Queen, l is created using piece parts from some of my other patterns-mainly a reduced version of my bead joint witch, Flying in Style.. Her diamonds are from the quilt show fabric. I also created her chair from twigs and a scrap of pressboard with the help of Apoxy Sculpt. The top of her staff was a parking lot find!
I also created a friend giraffe for her. I created a small stencil for the body for the spots. It is an original pattern. A view of her throne before she took possession.
