MY LATEST BABY!


From my earliest efforts I think I've got the hang of the beading techniques better now - and this is my first ever Icicle doll, inspired by some I saw on my visit to Linda.

She's made with a Kaffe Fassett fabric in the pinks on black colourway (well it had to be pink didn't it)! I've beaded all around the patterns in a random design. She has hair made from sari thread (another introduction from Linda) which is rather wonderful stuff, and her wings are pink German scrap. The charm at the bottom says "create".

I'm afraid I won't be trading her as I made her for ME, and she makes me smile every time I look at her, but I'm sure I'll be making more if anyone wishes to set up a trade.

Very creative. She is wonderful. I can't get the beading thing. I'm not even going to show my first attempt on Dottie dolls. Heaven sake, it was not good. I love the icicle dolls. You are like a creative powerhouse. Wish you could bottle your talent. LOL

Rosie - she is absolutely perfect. I'm so honoured you mentioned me. Make lots more because I want one just like her.
Hugs, Linda
