I started this doll in May of 2008. She was going to be a fairy catcher or Edwardian type of Miss, but she didn't want to be anything like that. So here we are in 2012 and this little girl is my Fortune Teller Doll!
She has her black stockings and pantaloons and her pose is the same.
The problem with having a paper skirt is that paper is very heavy.....(Think of a ream of paper) And making all the papers fan out evenly around her hips is tricky to say the least. But the effect is evident in how cute she turned out. The fact some of the papers twisted at the back of her outfit is not a problem really.
I really enjoyed making her. The challenge from the club got me thinking about making dolls again. As much as I think I don't have time or really want to make dolls - it seems I do. So perhaps there will be another doll on this site soon. We'll see how much time I have to create something new in the near future. Never say never..............
