Working on Some New Rag Cloth Dolls that will be Colorful

It's time to get busy again making my favorite thing....
rag cloth dolls.
As you can see I have just finished the body of the doll using Onsburg and I will be filling her with fiber fill, attaching the arms and legs. I plan on painting the facial features using the acrylic paints I love, I am using bright summer light weight cottons for the blouse and skirt. You can see that the blouse is somewhat done and that I am working on the skirt that is on the sewing machine. I have already decided her hair color which is going to be a bright pink heavy wool yarn. I can't quite get into working on fall just yet, I still have a lot of summer on my mind and I think I will do up a few colorful dolls, not sure if I will stain any of them but I might just to make a few look old.
I am also working on two/two sided dolls for someone and one to put in my Etsy store, I will have pictures of those later this week and pictures of this doll when it has been completed. At the end of August I will do up some scarecrows that I have been meaning to get busy with, well I think I will take a break and go step out into the Monday morning sunshine on the Oregon coast.
