Wild Little Miss Banshee

I just love how my paper mache' doll came out and I am a little late talking about her but still I want to share about her.  I created her for either St. Paddy's Day or Halloween.  I used 2 large balloons to get this doll started and mind you she is only for decor.  I torn strips of news paper and half water and mod podge to create her.  I painted the body black with acrylic paint and the head a dark green.  The facial features are also acrylic and the design of the face is painted free hand by me.   I added hair and it's a dark wool yard that is hot glued to the head of the doll.  I sewed the dress from some neat cotton fabric and gave her a fake fur wrap.  Miss Banshee is 14 inches tall.  She is not for small children but more for Halloween decor or St. Paddy's Day.  She is a one of kind in that I can only do her one time, no patterns were used to make her.  She is now in my Etsy store here

14 inch Primitive Cat made with muslin and stained

This cat was done up from an old 972 pattern I have laying around my home.  I made the cat from muslin then stained the cat with instant coffee, vanilla and cinnamon.  The cat is filled with fiber fill and I have hand painted the facial features free hand using acrylic paints.  You can find this sweet little cat here  to purchase, this cat is more for us older doll lovers rather than a young child.
