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 http://www.etsy.com/listing/94951303/wild-little-miss-banshee-for-st-pattys

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 http://www.etsy.com/listing/87608472/14-inch-muslin-primitive-cat-rag-cloth  to purchase, this cat is more for us older doll lovers rather than a young child.
