A New Fall Time Rag Cloth doll, Amber the Sweets
Well its storming this morning like crazy here on the Oregon coast, so I am sitting and drinking some hot blueberry tea and talking about the latest doll I just finished.
This is Amber the Sweets, and she is from a pattern that I designed, she is 16 inches long and I have made the body from drill fabric and stained it with my special stain and baked her in the oven at 200 degrees.
I then painted the facial features with acrylic paints and the design of the facial features are my own.
Now the dress is not stained and is a cute Fall time cotton fabric with sun flowers, crows, cats, and a house on it. I also did a fancy stitch on the dress to make a rick rack design around the bottom and sleeves of the dress using a off white cotton thread. The hair of the doll is an orange yarn and I have made loops and sewn them to the head of the doll using a heavy quilting thread. I will be adding to the art fire store Wend morning bright and early. This morning I have to get those Halloween decorations down before this wind blows everything away, I hope you all are staying nice and warm on this start of November 1st.
