Unfinished doll for DW a

Originally uploaded by katiejayinpa

this is the start of a small goddess doll for PA that i see instead of my PCP(Primary Care Physician) …she is an awesome person and i owe her a lot! One thing i was thinking of trying to do was changing the face part by adding a sculpted face. It would be soft sculpted from a piece of hosiery and then appliqued on. The reason i may do that is one, i would love to do it well, and two i am thinking that everything else on this doll is going be highly textural and it might look odd having a flatly embroidered face. We’ll have to see. I love making the bullion stitches out of perle thread. They work up so nicely. The back is probably going to be velvet or velveteen. What do you all think?
