At our March play date we all worked on various projects. I wanted to create a vintage doll with a cage skirt, it is WAY harder than it looks people! just really fussy and hard to get right. i suppose with practice it would be easier. my black wire also shed like crazy. once the skirt was done i plopped on the porcelain doll head with some plaster stuffed inside.
Next i made a bodice out of air dry clay. then i added some vintage lace ribbon to make a ruffle. used some thin wire to gather it up.
Next i added an assortment of beads and baubles to the wire skirt.
a couple of bows to finish her off. need to take a picture of her from the front i guess!
As is our custom - there were terrific little swaps - a glass light catcher mobile, some cards, napkins and little doo dads.
and a yummy lunch prepared by Z.
turkey chili with toppings.
and the sweetest little cheescake and a chocolate easter egg.
Since we do show and tell K showed off the paintings she did at a worksop at Femmage taught by Carrie Clayden.
they are so pretty!
Z got started on a copper crown for the santos doll K made for her.
all that wrapping!
