New Doll - Cathy

This is Cathy, perched in my little sideways rocker.  Cathy is a bit apprehensive about Halloween this year because she is certain that her big sister will smash her pumpkin again, and mom will make Cathy clean up the yucky mess! 

I'm not exactly sure what happened when I was creating Cathy, but her face came out completely different than my previous dolls.  Funny how that happens even though I used the same materials and sculpted her in the same manner.  Maybe it is just because of the expression on her face. 
A bit haunted, no?

Cathy's outfit is all hand-stitched so you can see tiny stitches.  The fabrics were chosen from scraps and tea stained.  Her hair is dyed mohair and her eyes are glass.

Cathy would like to send a warning out to everyone....protect your pumpkins this Halloween! 
It is very sad when they are smashed, not to mention yucky to clean up!

  1. She does look a bit haunted, but she must have a sweet soul to worry about the pumpkins.
