Meet Mabel

Hi Everyone
One of my new years resolutions was to "get sewing" and I have been inspired by the fabulous sewn characters that are created by Junker Jane whose fabulous quirky creations can be found HERE. Whilst this is my first creation, and is by no means at the fabulous standard that Junker Jane produces, I am quite happy with how she turned out so I have named her Mabel. 
So without further ado, meet Mabel!

Made using lots of bits of scrap materials and lots of swearing and more importantly lots of learning, mostly of how not to do something but I guess that's the learning process and it's good to learn. 
My trusty vintage photo distress ink aged the finished piece up and copics added her cheeks.
Hope you like her it feels like I have created my first born lol!!!
I would like to enter this into Paperartsy Art Doll Challenge
Thanks for popping in
