New Dolls for Knit and Stitch at Ally Pally

I have been working with the templates from the original book to design some new dolls and changing the techniques.  For the foxy figure I have reduced the trophy head pattern down to fit an 17" figure.  This could be worked upon to greater effect when I have a bit more time then one day to prepare and make him.  The other woodland spirit figure - is actually a composite of various body parts I had in my workroom which I have painted on with acrylics and a stipple brush to give a unified look.  Add a bit of silk tulle ( donated by my bridal designer friend) and also a scarp of beautiful silk lace (same source) and some chopped ribbing and there we are!  Great Fun.
