challenge cloth doll

The vintage cloth doll makers yahoo group has a cloth doll challenge going on.
The pattern was made by cinders one of the groups members.It is a wonderful pattern.
Normally I do not make others patterns. This one is a real joy to do. She is made from vintage feed sack fabric and wool fabric for her
stockings.Tomorrow I will work on her clothes and gesso and base coat her head.
Challenges are something that the vintage cloth doll makers group does often and it is wonderful to see the talent in the group.
