Folk Art Madonna and Child




Below,is a pic of the final construction. I covered all the batting by hand-stitching in place a knit meant for bathing suit, and active-wear lining...As I've said before, this is the first doll of this type I ever made, And had it not been for the generosity of other doll makers, I don't think I would have the gumption to undertake the process...A special thank You to my talented friend Flora, of Bonehead Studios and also the very talented "A little Bit Wired", whose visuals were invaluable to my progress...Thank YOU to all of you out there who share the "mysterious" in Figurative Arts!
