The Hive Creative Challenge - Autumn Poppet

I wanted to make someting special for the Hive's Autumn challenge, so I created Audrey, a Petite Poppet, to celebrate the new season.

Audrey's hair is made from a gorgeous autumn orange, organic wool.  She wears a long sleeve dress (perfect for chilly days), edged in creamy cotton lace and embroidery thread.  Her little felt shoes and tiny undies are embroidered with orange daisies and, to complete her outfit, I made a matching hair clip in co-ordinating fabric with amber glass beads at its centre.

Audrey's features have been hand painted with fabric paint and heat set with an iron.  Her hair may be left down or may be gently coaxed into different styles.

I've enjoyed this challenge immensely and am looking forward to participating in the next one!
Wishing you all a wonderful week:)
