Key to My Heart Doll

The doll club I belong to, Cloth Souls, recently used Sherry Goshon's pattern to create cloth hearts and swap them amongst members. The hearts are then used to create a triangular skirt base for a doll. Here's the doll I made with the three I got in the swap.
Her sleeves are made from a piece of embroidered sari fabric; her bodice is decoupaged with pieces of a pink napkin printed with red chili peppers!
The overskirt is venise lace.

The gold and fuchsia base cover is another piece of beautiful Indian fabric, given to me by my friend Rekha.
The wood base is decoupaged with pieces of napkin.

Sherry's online doll group also did a swap of three hearts. The three I received are more pastel than this, and I haven't made that doll yet. I really loved working with this pattern.

Wonderful, Sue. Maybe I will get around to making mine. I was lucky enough to see Sherry at the Iowa Retreat.
