New Design- Ghost Story Dolls

Finding lovely cotton fabric with writing and pressed flowers printed on it got me thinking about making some new ghostly dolls. I added some sheers and some tiny printed toile to the mix to add some different fabric textures.

Shimmering cat's eye beads should make interesting eyes. I've had a bag of these beads forever and have never found just the right doll to use them on. I'm really pleased with how she turned out. I've never made anything so gruesome.

Now I have to come up with the reasons why that even with a cut throat and 2 missing hands my ghost is still smiling in such a beguiling way..... My guess is she's plotting to scare the person who did this to her to death.

In my mind this Lavinia is going to be even more proactive in avenging the crime against her. I remember reading Titus Andronicus years ago and thinking it was too bad she didn't get to kill
Demetrius and Chiron herself.

New Cat Design- The Winged Halloween Moon Cat

I found this cute skull fabric and some fabric with little stars....it's obvious that they were just screaming to be made into this sweet little flying cat. Add a little vinyl and velour for the wings and ears ..... and Laszlo was born.
With bright green as the accent to the black and white patterned fabrics I made little Tasha.

I really enjoyed really limiting my color palette in this series. I'm working on 2 other black and white patterned with accents of fushia and orange. I'll add pictures soon.
Or check out my etsy shop for new listings starting Sunday.

UPDATE... Here's Lula! I love the fushia with the black and white print fabrics!
