And I had a brainstorm. I didn't want to wait until Christmas to display her, so I decided to make her a fall outfit first. (You see where I'm going with this, don't you?) Then, of course, there will be a Halloween outfit, then a Christmas outfit, then...
She was so fun to put together. Everything (except her nose) is pinned on, so that it can be easily changed for other seasons and holidays. All the supplies are from Hobby Lobby. Here she is!
She just makes me smile. I still have to put together a little sewing basket for her, but I've got to find one small enough.
Her eyes are craft brads; eyebrows/eyelashes are mini staples colored black with a Sharpie; mouth is DMC Memory Thread; ears are tiny pompoms; earrings are corsage pins bent at a right angle and inserted in ears; flower on hat and fox brooch are from the scrapbooking section; hat and glasses are from the doll making section.
Scissors, needle, and measuring tape bow are all from the scrapbooking section; felt leaves and pumpkin are from the fall crafting section; buttons, lace trim collar and lace skirt are in fabrics.
And that's what I did today when I should've been doing housework. And I'm not even sorry.
