Just in time for Halloween




I have a very dear friend, Colleen (http://dolljourney.blogspot.com/) made the most wonderful "Halloweenies". Check them out on her blog. She sculpted a face and made a mold. Wish she would impart some of that talent with me! Oh Well. In her honor and at her nudging I decided to make a witch or two. Here is the first one - "Don't Hate Me Because I'm Beautiful". She was great fun and I did another head that's sitting waiting. I think I like the green hair the best. I used inks and aloe gel to paint the stripes on her corset - the fabric started as deep navy and ecru. The aloe gel kept the ink where I wanted it and it dried very soft. I saw this demoed at the Harrisburg quilt show. It worked great though I only did the purple stripes. I used orange marker for the orange ones.
