Just Clowning Around

Hi everyone
Well I hope you feel better than me as I am full of a cold, that to be honest, I could do without. 
I have been sewing again, I'm loving making these art dolls and I am learning more about sewing as I construct them and really enjoying the learning process. 

Meet Clarissa the Clown

Clarissa stands over 17" tall from head to toe and has been constructed from both new and vintage fabrics and buttons. Stitching is a combination of machine free motion and utility and finished with some hand stitching.

Aged effect has been added using inks. 

I hope you like her

See you all soon

  12. Only just got over my cold Amanda but it has left a hacking cough that I can't get rid of so won't get to close to you.

    OMG she is amazing and I think she is pretty also (well someone has to love her). Seriously I love her to bits. Great work sweets.
