All day yesterday...while it rained and the winds whipped outside...I sat and drew up pattern for Nellie Jo and her Grungy baby bunny.
She is 26" tall...which was larger than I had initially wanted her to be...but....she is actually a nice size afterall. Her baby bunny is 14".
I gave her a seperate nose and mouth piece that was added to her face once everything was painted and grunged.
I actually like making this type of doll too. And honestly...if you would have asked me about Black Folk Art grungy dolls about a month ago...I would have told you I WOULD NEVER make them.
It is weird how my tastes have been changing lately. And it isn't because this type of doll is easier to make...THEY ARE NOT!! I just think they have SO much character... I will still make the Annie type dolls....but...I think these will become a staple in my desire to create. And I may even type up pattern to this one also.
She is listed on Ebay and there are 5 photos of her and a detailed description as well.
