What you are looking at here is part of a project my doll club is doing.We call it the Brown Bag Doll.We start with a brown bag and add 15 items,5 must be fabric.Then each month each person takes a different bag and add to the doll.This year has been harder then the others because we don't have as many participating this time so we have worked on the same doll more than once.
The person that started this doll wanted this ball to be part on it.So it is up to me now to make the ball look like it belongs to this doll and not just dropped in his lap.
Here as a close up of the head that I needle felted for him last month.I think he needs a hat so that is my project for today.In two weeks we have our lunch party.That is when we get to see what our doll turned out like.It is great fun.
Full view.He has great boots on. The ball is black and white, but I think it needs to be gold like all the details on his clothes.
Yesterday was my 47th birthday. I had to work but Adam took me out to dinner later to a great restaurant and then book shopping. I love books.This pic is of me and my Mommy and Daddy when I was very new,I don't know how old I was tho.Note: the cigarette in mom's hand(bad Mommy).Dad was 22 here and Mom was 18 and they had been married 2 years.Yes, my Mom was 16 when they married and she would not let me even start dating till I was 16.
