New doll


Here is my new stuffie. I haven't named her yet. She is approx 12 inches tall and 5 inches wide. I started by painting her original image on muslin. (after I gessoed it first). Then I sprayed her with an archival finishing spray. She is stuffed with polyfill and a red polka dot flannel fabric adorns her back. She wears a striped hat from recycled knit fabric with a vintage brass bell on the very tippy tip.

Can you help me name her?

Hi Tara!
I love her! Your dolls are so creative! I saw her and the name Eliza Bean popped in my head. No idea why. :)
