FINISHED WITCH DOLL

Hi All,
Okay, here she is, all done. She's  a 22 inch, all cloth doll. Her name is "Lady Esmeralda, the Royal Court Sorceress".


Her hair is decorated with feathers, flowers, beads, a skull, and a bat!

 I made her mask in the shape of a bat. I decorated it with tiny pieces of lace, and painted it all black.


 Here's a shot of her poison ring, and skull decor on her sleeve.


Have fun!

Love your doll. The colors are great and a great face.

Hey everyone - thanks so much for you comments! I'm so glad you like the doll. It took nearly 2 months to make her, so I appreciate it! Thanks for following my blog.

She is totally magnificent, Arley.
Can I ask how you would attach the arms if you 'dress them up' first?

Arley said...

Hey Stella -- good question! I have to be carefull when I sew the "dressed" arm to the torso, so I make sure I take deep stitches to catch the arm and torso fabric (not just stitching the costume fabrics together). I usually stitch around the arm 3 times to make sure it stays secure.

You are a phenomenally brilliant artist and your creations are awesome!.

I should call you Stella Spell-tastic as you have blown me away with your artistry. I am kind of an amateur doll maker but trying to develop my stuff all the time - especially how to master the art of advanced cloth manipulation to create very intricate features. I will create a Pintrest page of my own work for you to check out what I do, but my dolls are nowhere near as gorgeous and sophisticated as yours I may add.
