I had to put my little Sloth twins aside, there was something about them , I don't know what, so they are now cosy together in a little box, patiently waiting until I know what it is.
Last Saturday I began making an owl but he is also in a box. . . .
I'm in a slump !?!
Mmmm, Sunday I visited my mother, she has just moved house and she was in desperate need for help.
My mother has some beautiful antique dolls,lots of bears and two dolls I made when I was 18 years old.
They are made of Fimo and although the colour has darkened they are still in good shape.
I had been making a doll as a present for someone the last week and I realized I missed making dolls.
The doll I made last week was inspired by this picture :
Geppetto carving Pinocchio, he only had his head done and Pinocchio started already making fun of him.
I love this pic !
I first made him of wool felt but I couldn't get the details right and decided to make him of cotton fabric.
So this is the Pinocchio so far, his face is a bit naughty and I have to adjust a little something here and there but I'm pleased.
The lower half of his body is going to be painted as a tree log.
I sooo enjoyed this !
