'Diana' - Paper Doll


This is a paper doll I made for a one to one swap
with the sweet Jandee.

Her name is 'Diana' - the Roman fairy name meaning
Goddess of the Woodlands.


From the look of her hair (fine silky yarn)
it seems she's been frolicking around in the woods!

We decided to make a 'ribbon' doll, so there are
no legs involved (don't know how she's been
frolicking around then - ah, but she's a Goddess so
she can do anything!)


Her bodice and sleeves are sari ribbon.
The cuffs and neckline and part of the skirt are
fibres from a ball of polyester yarn.
There are other pieces of ribbon in the skirt too.

This is what the back of the doll looks like.


Hope you'll like her Jandee.

As always, thank you for looking :)
