Winifred was my last finish for August. She is a 'Country Keepsakes' doll and I made most of her at a doll making day at Cottage on the Hill in Jan. I had my mum and my 7yr old dd with me that day. JessieGirl helped to stuff both my doll and my mums doll. Prior to attending I had decided that Winifred would become JessieGirls birthday present later in the year, a lovely surprise for her. She has had her birthday now and LOVES the doll.
Instead of knitting a scarf as per the pattern I used felt, and this gorgeous dragonfly button to resemble a brooch. I also got to use the new rose maker (Clover products) that I bought recently at Cottage on the Hill to make the rose for the hat. It was easy to use and I will deinfately use it again.
To draw Winifred's face I used a pigma pen and pencils that I purchased years ago from Katkins Designs. Having followed Karlene's guidelines for creating faces previously helped me alot when it came to drawing Winifred's face.
Her shoes are painted on but I didn't make stockings for her as the skirt is more than long enough to reach to the tops of her boots.
The buttons on her jacket are just stunning, but I wasn't able to get a clear close up of these.
Must remember to ask mum if she has finished her doll yet......
