Finally on Friday, my project "Seasons" for the Hello Dollies challenge was ready for presentation on Saturday... as usual, last minute touches were needed. I decided on a "flat doll" project, for this challenge which was to "create your own fabric" to make a doll from a basic pattern provided. I thought the stump doll pattern lent itself easily to the flat doll idea. I had been working on the idea for a long time, making all sorts of different fabric, most of which was rejected and has since found other uses. I finally settled on four bits of machine embellished and embroidered fabric to complement a piece of space dyed commercial fabric on which I had stamped face images.
Although I had this ready for the presentation, I am planning perhaps to have some branches entwining the arches and replacing the green felt back with some "seasons" themed poetry or sayings printed onto fabric. Still making those decisions... any good ideas?
