Round Robin

One of the clubs I belong to, Cloth Souls, is doing a doll round robin amongst the members. Our theme is "Queen of..." and we had to decide what we would be queen of. So, despite many brilliant ideas, my muse decided my doll should be Queen of the Swamp. And she should be made of green fabric. And the green fabric should be an old sheet (which really gave me fits and caused me to re-make many parts - and I should have remade much more).

At any rate, we don't see them again till they come home, but here is what I'm launching tonight. I'm reminded of "Alice the Goon" in the old Popeye cartoons. Not what I intended...



Made from the Madame Zlotska pattern by Barbara Schoenoff - I'm anxious to make this again, using decent fabric, and making *several* heads so I can choose the best face. Sigh.

She's great Sue!! oh, it will be such fun to see what she comes home like....

How many in your group? and how long do you have to work on each doll? ... I can't even imagine what it must be like to have each one show up and then try to decide how to proceed with some portion of them..... it must be great fun.

I always think that you can't have a successful doll unless you get the stuffing right. Looks to me as though yours is stuffed perfectly. The face looks good too. I am looking forward to seeing what she looks like when she comes home

Oh Sue, she is wonderful the way she is. I am sure you will get back a Queen of the Swamp that will be the envy of all the Queens! :)

She's so interesting already! Can't wait to see how she comes home. How many dolls will you be working on for the RR?

Looks like she is going to turn into quite a character. Can't wait to see her finished.
