This little lady was a birthday pressie for the Blonde back in June but I've only just got round to posting her picture. She was my first attempt at making a doll from scratch, with no pattern, and didn't go quite as well as I'd hoped. There are a few strange lumps and bumps (that's the pot calling the kettle black...) and bless her, she's a got a distinctive face!
I stitched her features on before I'd stuffed her and didn't realise till then that I'd put her mouth far too low down. Still, you live and learn - and she's got quite a sweet (yet gormless) expression. And I love her shoes. She's made mainly from felt (including glittery felt and some great stuff with shimmery strands running through it) and has a pipecleaner halo.
Why an angel? Well, my little sis used to be (still is) into a band called Little Angels (one of whom is now the drummer in Feeder, who she's also a huge fan of) and ever since then she's liked stuff to do with angels.
