Today's spotlight is on a foam paper doll I just finished and is in my store Frankly It's kute Productions.
Dilly Dandy is 11 inches and made from foam, I have added googly eyes, hair is golden cotton embroidery floss and I have done a little painting the rest of the facial features.
I also have made 3 little dresses to go with her from some very nice card stock. In the dress she is wearing there is a little kitten hiding.
I loved paper dolls when I was a little girl and I collecting some of the old time paper dolls. But I also thought it be fun to make my own!
There are other paper dolls in my store and I am always working on new or improving my ideas.
You can also purchase the pattern and instructions to make the paper doll and her clothes or purchase the paper doll and instructions. I think every little girl should have a chance to enjoy a paper doll, what a way to make your imagination come alive. It's also a forgotten art I think.

The spot light is on this cute little bear that I created a while back. This is Harvest Time Frankie bear and he is $25.00 or you can can get the pattern and instructions for $7.00
Frankie was created with some cotton flannel and I designed a sun flower and ironed it to his tummy. He is filled with fiber fill and has black button eyes. What I did a little different was to allow there to be a ragged edge all around him by fraying the the flannel a little. His nose is also a small black button and I torn some fall time cotton fabric for a bow. I think is he a a wonderful, colorful 14 inch bear.
