    Butternut Challenge Doll


    This is my first challenge doll, which was made from a free pattern by Shashi, for my Cloth Doll Making group. The theme here was supposed to be Mardi Gras. I think I just about pulled it off, except maybe for the face. It just gave me fits! It's such a small area to work on, and getting the left and the right sides to match-HA! It's just not as easy as it looks, folks. Of course, I'm finding that is true of just about everything I delve into lately. Oh well, I love a challenge.

    Her boots were pieced together and sewn on over the legs, then laced and beaded. Same thing with her sleeves and gloves. Her vest, tie, and head-dress are also individual pieces. We were given free run (pretty much) in costuming, and even some allowance for pattern alterations.

    In this challenge there were three design levels : Newbies, Advanced, and Professional. It really is worth the time to pop in and look and the wonderful work that was done. And as with all creative works, everyone had a different idea and concept for what this pattern and challenge meant for them. Kudo's to Phyllis Robbins, our group leader for all of her time and effort-IT IS APPRECIATED!!!!
