But, I guess I'll just have to get over it a little bit because it's supposed to stick around for a bit.
I'm a little hesitant to share the next item with you. Because I brought her into work and it was a little of a mixed reception. But, I think she's kind of silly, a little Coraline-ish.
Her name is Drucilla. I made her Sunday night. Mmmkay. Let me explain. I was browsing etsy and saw this doll. And thought: I could make that and I should! I tucked that in the back of my mind along with the million other projects I think I should make. So Sunday I had finished the runner, the weather was ewwey and I didn't want to really work on anything serious. and, let's face it - I love dolls! I remembered the zombie doll from etsy and set about gathering supplies. I have been making dolls since I was a little girl, and the thing I love about making them I finally realized this weekend. As I make a doll, even just getting the fabric together, I start to think of their story, their personality, name, and usually a story comes along with it. When I used to make the little dolls as a girl, let's say if it was boy doll. I would think he might play baseball and what color eyes he'd have and who in my other dolls I'd made would be his friends and maybe he'd have a crush on a girl doll. And on and on in my head it would go. Sunday was one of those moments when I had to make a doll, no other craft would do. I'm embarrassed that her shirt is made out of felt, but my other orange fabric I just could not figure out a pattern to fit her and I got lazy. Plus this is just her halloween shirt. I've decided that she will have other outfits. I'm thinking I must make her a boyfriend, equally as eccentric. I have a feeling they like rock concerts.
