Ms. February

After playing a little yesterday with the staining and baking of fabric.....I had to go further. I am so inspired by artists like Jennifer-Butt Uglee that I find myself wanting to do more art with fabric and prim techniques. So, today, I set out to make a doll. I wanted to do something Valentines. I made my own pattern for this doll. Meet Ms. February:


I'm not kidding, I worked on this little lady all day long. This would be my first "rag" doll and it took some thinking to construct her properly. Then, I had to create her clothes and her little heart banner.

But, I enjoyed making her very much. She is listed in my Etsy shop now!

I got to meet Miss Valentine in person. And I must say that she wanted to stay at my house but that mean ole Funky Art Queen whisked her off & took her to the car! Can you believe that? Well I never!

Love ya, Love Miss Valentine too! HeeHee! Renea

She is a beauty. I made dolls for each of my kids when they were babies and they were hard to do but very rewarding.
