Making Molly Doll

Don’t think I’ve gotten Molly Doll up yet. Made from wire armature, cotton, silk, found fabrics, beads and ribbons, and acrylic paint, as well as real hair.

Doing this on a smart phone is not easy, folks! Anyway, I got little fish beads all around the basket on the outside. I anchored them with tiny imagebeads which are now popping off as wood further work on the basket. I have begun securing them. All is well. Need to move on to Linda Doll, Zsade Doll, and post Molly Doll.

Weaving away the hours, basketry

I spent almost all day working on this basket. It is a slow process. Got through several episodes of Orphan Black. I am varying the sinew color and the the pine needles, light, dark and so on. I have include some of the trumpet vine branches and a thin piece of bamboo periodically to add strength. Also adding in some bits of color with raffia and embroidery thread ( and the gold and bronze metallic threads…it gets pretty tangled up after awhile)that I carry along side my tube with the needles.
I haven’t quite decided what the ultimate shape is going to be but I do want to add some dangly trinkets. I have beads and metallic shapes ( birds, scissors, frogs, elephants, bells.)…haven’t decided. I have to ask the basket what it wants. Sounds weird but it works. The basket talks.Basketry July 20 2013

Millefiori results

Because the cane was so thin it was distorted too much by the cut into individual pieces. I will probably stick with painting the eyes. Oh well.

Not as easy as expected. But I will keep them for future whimsical dolls. Made buttons and beads.
