Madama Butterfly

I just finished one of my dolls from the Cloth & Clay Workshop by Jane DesRosier. I have decided to name her Madama Butterfly. The collage papers I used for the boxes were my inspiration.
I am anxious to finish my second doll. She has more of an Izannah Walker doll resemblance and I love the nesting boxes I made to match her. The collage papers are extremely Victorian and the boxes are bandbox shaped.

Happy Holidays!

I love the butterfly dolly!! So beautiful and creative! Nice work!!

Thanks for the sweet comments you left on my blog. You gave me a smile. :-)

I'm not sure which song you were listening to on my blog. I have a player at the very bottom of my blog that I've put over 100 songs on. I programmed it to play a different song each time. I wish I could answer your question...I'm sorry. If you hear a song you like, scroll all the way down and look at which song is highlighted. You can also change which song is playing. I'm happy you enjoyed the song...whichever one it was. :-)

She is absolutely adorable! My friend Joyce took this same class from Jane also. You did an amazing job on her and the fabric covered boxes are the perfect addition!

Happy creating!

Thank you Flor! I have a vintage book with many beautiful butterfly drawings. I ran the picture through my scanner and then printed it on fabric paper with my color printer. I made two copies, stitched them together, stuffed it with a fiber filling and then sealed it. Oh yeah, I changed the color on my printer for a different hue. I was pleasantly surprised how it turned out. I love to experiment. I linked to follow your site. Thank you for visiting mine.

I really enjoy our group too. I love dolls! It is inspiring to see so many and everyone has their own personal style-amazing! I've made a bunch of dolls since the class. I'm definitely addicted. I really want to practice my sculpting techniques and try some different things. I can't wait to see what you come up with next! I love the features on your doll-so sweet!
