I didn't know if they were going to work, I just did a quick sketch and drew them out onto the cloth. Today was the last day of the challenge and time was running out but I didn't want to rush it...I tried to cheat a bit by using clothes I had for my bunnies but it just didn't work so all morning I made a whole new wardrobe for these two! I'm very happy that I did as they turned out just like how I imagined!!
They are cloth dolls, stuffed, coffee stained and rubbed with beeswax. All the buttons on their clothing are vintage. Their faces are hand embroidered and the leggings have been hand painted.The base is Huon pine with model makers grass glued to the top. A few little glass jewels are glued onto the ground to suggest dew or a bit for fairytale magic!
