Last June I received this doll shape with a challenge to have it embellished and finished by September.
The doll, now known as the Green-Eyed Monster, is made of a bright batik fabric and is about 4.5 inches tall.
It was quite the challenge because it wasn't the shape or the fabric I would have picked.
I covered it with outlines and swirls of a simple running stitch in really bright colors. It still needed something more so I added some shell beads.
I love shell beads. They vary from pink to white to grays and they catch the light at different angles. All but the eye's are attached with petite seed beads and the eyes are attached with regular sized green seed beads (hence the name).
The doll has a pin back so I can use it to dress up sweaters and my jeans jacket.
I'm off to the meeting. I can't wait to see how others embellished their dolls.
