Derby Day

In honor of Derby Day and the Queen and her hats, I thought I would post a pic of some dolls I made a few years ago. This is called "Derby Day" Meet Verda, Peaches and Gertie, southerns belles all decked out for the Derby. They are adapted from a pattern by Bunny Goode, Wilhemina Wallflower. I was practicing my eyes--using eyelids and setting in glass eyes. Verda is made from fantasy fabric, Peaches is Crazy Quilted, and Gertie just is Gertie. Hope your favorite wins the race.

They eyes are incredible, esp with the lids. Very realistic.
Cute gals, I hope they have fun at the races!
