Old Dolls-- Mel

Mel--Oct. 14, 2001.

Muslin, velvet, recycled shimmery polyester underskirt, vintage beads, paint, and handspun yarn. Crocheted mohair hat with beaded accents. Here is a closeup of her hat:

I believe she was about 11" tall, and handsewn. She sold on ebay.

A detail of her dress:

This was the simple doll pattern I have--it's really not difficult, but the head is three pieces and makes it harder to sew if you don't know what you're doing. :)

Mel has the distinction of being my very first witch.
