Eleanor and Prudence have been sitting in a box filled with pretty fabrics for the longest time! Well, I should say that their bodies were all made up, but I was saving them for a special idea. Finally, this week, I dug them out of their cozy home and began their transformation.
This is how they turned out! Eleanor, above left, with Prudence on the right - named of course after two of my favourite Beatles songs!
Each little doll measures about 5 inches tall and is made from unbleached muslin. I made their little 'button' eyes out of paper clay and then painted them black. Their dresses are made from Japanese cotton and I've added a teeny beaded apron for each.
Pinning on their hair.
These tiny rag-dolls are available for adoption in my shop and would make wonderful friends for a bigger doll.
Wishing you a creative weekend:)
