New Doll in Progress Just Because....

I received this beautiful lace from Tammi in Michigan.  She used it on her Diva doll during class in May and I must admit I lusted after it! LOL  She so generously sent me a piece of it along with quite a few others that were just as pretty.  I decided I needed to do a new Steampunk version of my Diva Pattern.  I wanted to use Purple, Copper and Cream.  I also wanted to test this fabric I purchased at Joann's.  I bought a bolt (50 yds!) of Southern Belle Cream 200 ct cotton muslin.  It was only available by the bolt.  I have used it on the body, head, and hands (which I haven't turned yet) and so far so good.  Thank goodness!  50 yds will last a long time.  Here is a sketch and some of the fabrics I have pulled out for the doll.  The lace from Tammi in on the lower left, with the the purple flowers.  I think I'll do paperclay over on the face because I need the practice.

Oh, I know she will be a beauty! If that fabric works out for you, then maybe I shall also purchase some of it as well...lol! 50 yds is a good "hunk" of fabric!

I can imagine what she'll look like and know that she'll be stunning. I can't wait to see her finished and ready to show herself.

Your sketch is really interesting. Can't wait to see how it translates into the finished doll. Doll Cherie
