spring fling


Our local doll club, Creative Doll Artists is having a pin doll exchange with the California club, Imitation of Life Construction Company (IOLCC). The theme is, "Spring Fling" So here's the one that I made. I got the spring part, but not the fling!!

I like it. I love the colours and way your circled the beading. What are the dimensions? Is it beaded in the back too?

I beaded the doll, then cut out around the shape. Then I cut out the same shape, but a tad smaller for the backing. I covered the backing with satin, and adhered the two together with Steam-a-Seam. For a cleaner finish, I put a round of beading afterwards to cover up where the back and front meet. She measures about 6" including those little dangling do-das!

Hmmmm....seems like you're being inspired to do some bead embroidery. I wonder why? Very nice, if I do say so myself.

why thank you! I wish I had made it a tad smaller, say 4" But I can't lament over it! I usually bead when I'm avoiding real work!
