A New Round Robin

The Cloth Souls club has started a new round robin, with the theme "My Name is Betty..." We were to devise a doll and the first chapter of her story, surrounding that theme. The doll we provide needed the basic doll and her face.

My premise is that this is the original Betty - the one that Betty Grable, Bettie Page, and even the illustrated Betty Crocker were inspired by. I used a doll pattern provided by Sherry Goshon for a different project in her group, and made the whole premise even more difficult by using only patterned fabrics for the doll. This is such a lovely, creative group, and the whole concept is so off-the-wall, I can't wait to see what's done with the dolls.

When my Betty returns home in four months, I'll be sure to share. Remember my fabulous Swamp Queen? She came from this group.

The picture isn't the best. I took down my light cube to make room for house guests and haven't put it back together yet. I had to grab a quick shot before Betty left the house!

Your Betty is a delight! I'll look forward to seeing how she evolves!
