My 'Prim Dolly Doodles' have been on the back burner for almost a year now and needless to say, they are not at all happy about it.
With Halloween only a few days away, I simply couldn't ignore their pleas any longer, so decided it was time to set aside the bears and squeeze in a Prim Dolly Doodle Witchypoo in time for some All Hallowes Eve fun.
My dollies don't aspire to high artistry, they are proud of their primitive cloth doll roots. Simplicity they say, allows a cheeky personality to shine through!
They begin to come to life as soon as their eyes are painted and as you can see below, by the time I create the hairdo, there's no holding these saucy little misses back!
I finished 'Hester Harvest Witch' yesterday evening, so didn't have time to hunt out her broomstick and take a studio photo before dinner ... but as you can see, she was determined to introduce herself anyway, the moment her little witch hat was stitched firmly onto her head!
Happily, Hester was content to pose for her formal Witchypoo photo this afternoon! She was adopted within moments of making herself known online and will shortly hop onto her broomstick to spend Halloween with her lovely new owner.
Hopefully I will find time to make one or two festive Prim Dolly Doodles in time for Christmas ... please watch this space for further dolly developments!
