Flying Witch

I started this doll I believe at the end of Last year.  I have had the idea in my head forever! I had this beautiful fabric I won from Hoffman.  It was purple with gold scrolls.  I back painted it black to make the gold stand out more and it worked perfectly!  I wanted her to look like she was flying, so created a base with a "hovering" broom over a countryside for her to perch on.  She is very stylish - 5 different skirts, lots of embellishements and those shoes!!!!  She is bead jointed and can be removed from her broomstick and sit anywhere.  She is larger than I usually work - 22".  Her hair is a deconstructed sweater in the perfect color.  The feathers in her hat are from a poor chicken that was scattered in my yard one morning - probably a snack for our elusive fox.  More closeups.

Her standing.  Her hand is temporally pinned to her hat.

And of course those shoes.  Trimmed with hand made bats!  I did trim off those threads. 

Flying in Style is currently residing in her new home in the Midwest.
