This is a DANCING witch! I call her "HARVEST HOE-DOWN.
She is for
sale on my Etsy site (here) SOLD
She's about 22 inches tall. She's balanced on one leg and glued to a wooden base.
She's decked out in fall colors (I even stitched fall maple leaves to her dress) with a green petticoat and bloomers.
The face is cloth and is needle-sculpted. I used acrylic paint for the eyes and lips, with colored pencils and chalk for shading. Her eyes have eye lashes.
The hat is full of fall foliage, including some small pumpkins!
Making the body was a challenge, as she has to stand on one leg. There's a heavy wire armature inside that goes from the neck down through the standing leg and into the base.
I like how her boots turned out. I patterned the cloth feet in the shape of the shoe, and then covered it in cotton, leather, and spandex.
I'm also listing the VOODOO QUEEN, which I wrote about in a previous post.
