Actually, two of them got made right away into Little Red Riding Hoods. I showed you one of them here. Here is the other one:
This time Little Red Riding Hood is blond with big blue eyes, and she's dressed in her summer clothes. A black gingham paper skirt, a short sleeved top trimmed with Swarovski crystals, bobby socks and Mary Jane's. Her cloak is still made from red wool felt. I tried to do one in a lighter weight fabric, but it just didn't hang right.
Once I got these Little Red Riding Hoods finished, in late APRIL, the rest of the armatures sat around waiting, sometimes not so patiently. I finally got to them after the 4th of July! Here they are all lined up, waiting.....
And here is a group shot of all of them finished:
(not a great picture, I KNOW!)
What a diverse little band of characters, isn't it? I will show each piece individually with more details in the coming days.
I'm having a great time making Halloween spooks. I know one of these days I will need to quit and begin making Christmas pieces and my ornament collection for 2013. But right now there are too many ghouls haunting my head and I have to get them out!!
I hope you all had a great weekend!
