The Fisherman's Wife

My lovely group of "Art Girls" met on Friday (minus a few sorely-missed members) to play about with making some art dolls. None of us had any experience with this particular medium before, but had the advice of dear Martha, via long-distance (who also sent us a gorgeous surprise package of scrumptious fabrics and trims to play with), plus some books and magazines. I will ask for permission from the others to post pictures of their results, but in the meantime, here is "The Fisherman's Wife", both in progress and completed.

Muslin body, domino face, hand-dyed and distressed cheesecloth, seashell hair, coiled wire and beaded face, braided leather arms, beaded necklace, bracelet, and skirt. Oh yeah, and silk cocoon bra (nothing but the best for our girl).


  1. Ooooo! I love it! She is quite beautiful and quite the accomplishment for a first time doll. You can tell you have experience with cloth and your embellies are just perfect.

  2. She is so much more beautiful in real life. Thank you for sharing her with us today at lunch.

    I found your blog and have it saved on my blogroll so I can watch for updates.


Talk to me, Y'all!
