Little Miss Flat becomes Little Miss Fat?

No, just Little Miss Cuddly! Generously proportioned curves in all the right places. She is 'Babushka Beauty' from Handmade magazine Vol 25 No 10 by the very talented Jhoanna Monte Aranez. I couldn't find the perfect flesh-coloured felt for the face (other than a sickly shade of apricot!), so used linen instead.  Nor could I find the perfect red-coloured felt for the cape, so went with red & white spotty fabric. Considering the aforesaid lack of felt, Little Miss is constructed on a foundation of thin pellon for stability. The girls in our house all think she is pretty cute. The boys are eyeing her off as an ideal football! I am thinking how wonderful she would look on the shelf with three or four progressively smaller sisters - ooooh, but we won't go there!

  5. Your work is so neat! I really like this and it is just not my thing normally. I am sure the linen face and the polka dot cape are the reasons why! lol - better than the original.

  13. I totally agree with all the girls in your house and think that she is so cute. I adore her little face and I could definately see her with little sisters. As for the male who wants to use her as a football, of course that is the next best thing...... boys will be boys.
    You have been busy while I've been preoccupied. Lovely to catch up Ros. Hugs Fee xx
