Dolls: a new addiction
I've been working on dolls this week. Savannah the Snow Princess is my newest creation. I wanted her to be white from head to toe and decided that she really didn't need facial features.
I chose a crocheted doily to use as her dress. I used white fleece for her cape and edged the hood and outside edge with fur.
She stands on a wooden platform that my husband painted white. I then added glitter to resemble snow. I wanted her to appear as if she were outside so I chose a silver tree from the craft store to add to the platform.
I have to say that making dolls is as addictive as fiber art. However, one thing I enjoy so much is that I can finish one in much less time than I can a piece of at.
I get a charge out of creating an idea for a doll and then creating the clothes, etc. to carry out that image.
