.: Mexican Dolly :.

Happy Monday !!

Hope you enjoy your weekend, I did relax a bit watching movies with my family and playing the drums like crazy lol my arms and legs hurt X_X but it totally worth it :).

I've been wanting to show you a little Mexican dolly I made months ago, this work is completely different like everything I've done before, I used hard canvas fabric and other typical Mexican textiles.The design is based on the traditional dolls they make in Oaxaca , I changed the face and left the typical clothing.

I hope you like her, I've been experimenting with a lot of techniques lately and I have discovered new and exiting things I want to learn, Most of the time I tend to feel quite overwhelmed about all the different styles I like and want to work on lol.

Well here it is, meet - Rosita ^_^ (little rose)
She's 12 inches tall and filled with hard polyfil like old rag dolls, I noticed that it makes a huge difference when you use soft or hard filling, these dolls usually are very hard. For the hair I used a weird Mexican yarn I found in Tijuana and I really like how it turned out.

Scarlett loves her and she requested a little boy companion for her, so he's in the works right now I still need to dress him and sew some body parts, I will introduce you to him when I'm finished.

That's all for now, Don't forget to make your paper doll! :)
Take Care and See you around ♥
^_^
