Latest Dolls

This is one of two dolls I made for the Houston Quilt Show. This first doll is my rendition of WENDY from PETER PAN.
She is part of a series that my doll club, TAODA does every year, called Storybook Dolls. This group of dolls travels to local libraries in the Houston area. Each set of dolls travels for 2 years. So the next time I see WENDY in person, I'll vaguely remember her!

PETER PAN was my favorite story as a child. I have a threadbare copy that my mother read to me over and over again, till I learned to read it to myself!
WENDY is approximately 9" tall, with her treehouse being about 12" tall altogether. She is sculpted from PAPER CLAY over a wire armature, and then covered with cotton cloth.
FOREST MAGE is the second doll that I made for the quilt show. She is part of a fabric challenge from one of the show sponsors.
FOREST would be about 19" if she were standing. She is also sculpted from PAPER CLAY and covered with cloth.

Ooh, Angela, your two new dolls take my breath away. I love your new cloth-over-clay technique - such a unique and lovely effect. I'm sending telepathic applause your way - xox,

Hola, acabo de descubrir este tipo de muñecas, no las conocía, y me he enamorado de ellas. Miraré tutoriales e intentaré hacer una muñeca. Soy coleccionista de muñecas y realizo OOAKs. Felicidades por tu trabajo. Un saludo desde España.
