dolls in progress

i have been sewing my fingers to the bone trying to get the dolls completed…well, ok, not the bone, but i do have calluses on my finger tips!!

here is the fairy, perched in the garden!  i had a lot of fun doing her hair!  she has a regular twirly skirt for day-to-day….

i have three more dolls to make for this mama.  maybe you guys can help me with some ideas.  we kind of wanted to do the four elements.  we have a fairy, and mermaid, a tree spirit and we need something for fire?  it would be for a boy.  any ideas?

    Your dolls are enchanting. Making dolls for the elements is a great idea.
    In the 16th century the alchemist Paracelsus named salamanders as the fire elementals. Maybe you could make a lizard like doll or something like Ironman or a super hero for the boy.
    I hope you’ll post a picture of it, when you decide. 🙂
