Celebrate...

Using everyday household items, I created a doll celebrating my inner child.


My method 
masking tape to join the pieces together

doll shape covered with paper clay and left to dry

I cannot tell you how much I love this. I am longing for a little time to play and I think when I get it, this might be a project I'll jump into -- you don't have to sew and it's wonderful. No matter what you did, every one would be unique. I'm impressed! Retirement is coming soon -- this will be a great lake house project! I just LOVE this!

I love that you took the time to show us how you did this. I would love to give it a shot one day. I can feel my hands itching already.

Great that you let her come out and play! Really intriguing to see your method of making her. You made it look easy, but I know it's a lot of work--though sometimes work seems a lot like play!
