Jane Austen paper Doll

I made this doll for Victoria, my swap partner
for the Advent Swap I participated in.

One of Victoria's likes is Jane Austen so I Googled
some images and her blue dress seems to feature a lot!

I copied it the best I could (oops, should have
ironed it by the looks of it, I'm sure Jane Austen's
dress would have been perfectly pressed and pristine)

Her face is moulded from air dry clay -
 the hair is some sort of dyed wool - 
I can't give more details as I can't get to my cupboard 
where my supply of it is kept at the moment as there's 
Christmas presents blocking the door!

Oooh-la-la - moving swiftly on!

I also made an ATC to accompany the doll,
see, there's that blue dress again - lol.

This is the last of the Advent presents I made for Victoria,
but it's been a lovely swap and I've felt like a little girl
again opening up a present every day
(and of course, there's still one to go!)


I'd like to take this opportunity of wishing everyone
a very 

Merry Christmas 
and a  
Happy and Healthy
New Year
and to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart 
who takes the time to read my blog
and leave me comments, I really appreciate each and every
one of them.

Enjoy your celebrations and hope to see you
here again next year (if not before!)

She is adorable proper, just waiting modestly around for mr Knightly. While I haven't really read many Austen books, I do love the tv series and movies made from them.
Happy holidays - again:)

I love her Sherry. I used to love paper dolls when I was little. Me and my best friend played with them for hours, changing clothes or drawing our own designs for them. So much fun.
