Mini Me

Over the Easter holidays, I sat down and began making a body for the painted doll's head I made a few weeks ago for my profile shot, the one you see in the right bar. This here is a leg. I found this brown cotton print that is covered in flowers. I liked the colour ( which is really close to my skin tone) and the idea that the doll's body would appear to be covered in floral tattoos.

Two legs, two arms and one torso, ready to be sewn up together.

Finally, attach the head, and that's Me, done. In a few days, I'll make some clothes for Mini me. In the meantime, I'll just hang out in my floral birthday suit.

May I suggest the red floral skirt you wore last summer... or would that clash?
