pindolls for this month

This is the pin I made for my partner on the Cloth Doll Artistry list on ning. She is about 4 1/2 inches tall. The swap was part of the pin doll studio which I help moderate for Connie who is the group owner. My partner is Shirley and she lives in Canada where this little gal will be mailed off to tomorrow.

Whimsical hats was this month's theme for pin doll alley group. I ended up making three hats. The yellow one has the pin back. Here are some close ups.

This is a beret to which I added trim and ribbons and beads. It is about 2 1/2 inches around
This is the yellow hat with trims and beads. It is about 1 1/2 inches high.
this one is also about 1 1/2 inches high. Lots of beads and a gold bow!

Fairy and Pixie

Well I finally finished my working fairy challenge. It can't be shown until after the challenge is over. I am glad I got it done. I do however have a pixie to show you. She Allison Morano's pattern called the bookshelf pixie. I have made it before but gave that doll away so wanted to make myself one.

Isn't she a saucy little thing! LOL used dyed silk for the dress and hat, batik for the legs and doe suede for the rest of body and head. She has mohair locks for hair.
I think her little hat is cute! It is embellished with beads and ribbon.
