second painted doll

Here is my second attempt at an inspired by antique dolls painted doll. I put a bead between the stuffing of her head and the fabric of her head, in nose position, to give a tiny little shape to the nose area.

The apron is a part of a thrifted pillow case with really nice cross stitch.  I made the apron with a lining of the same fabric, so that I didn’t have to hem all those curves.  Just put the right sides together, sewed around, turned, and then top stitched closed.

Here she is with doll the first.  I like doll the second better- she has a sweet face

And here’s a little sailor guy that blew in from ebay.  More about him, later
