Hairy Decisions

Incase you don't remember the Hoffman Challenge fabric, here is a pic.  I purchased dyed wool at AFIC and got  a lit purple and lt green I thought would work with the hoffman fabric.  I gave her the lt purple hair first and wasn't too crazy about it.  I decided to virtually change her hair color to the green but I think it would blend in too much with her eyes and the green of the Challenge fabric.  I pulled the hair off and decided to make it a few shades darker to match the darker purple in the fabric and the first coordinating fabric.  I used a new Ranger product, Distress stains in dusty Concord.  Like this hair color best which is a good thing because it's permenant!  Makes her eyes stand out I think. So now onto the rest of the doll and figuring out how to firmly attach her to the base and seat.  YIKES!!!

I love this doll! Can't wait to see the finished piece. I agree about the hair, definitely purple is better. Good on you! Bethx

She is very very cute. For some reason I really like the lavender hair. Can't wait to see how it finishes.

I'm anxiously awaiting your finished Hoffman doll, too. You've whetted my appetite!

Don't forget to send photo(s) to me for my Hoffman pages. I've got about six dolls there already, but would love more.

I'm working on mine today :-)
