Shrink Art Composition

A little comic relief for today.

I call this little composition,
"Credit Management".

Or "Fold, Spindle, and Mutilate!"

Decoupage, on a sheet of plexiglass, painted on the reverse side.

Betty Anne and Bitsy

Here is Betty Anne and her little friend, Bitsy. They are 8 and 16 inches tall.   Made from free patterns, Betty Anne is an all-on-one-page no-instructions-no-picture design by MBH titled PegO'Myhart, complete with buttoned mary-janes.     Bitsy's pattern is Itsy Bitsy by Bowls-n-Annies.  These two were fairly quick and fun to make. I've enjoyed making some of this style of doll for a change of pace.

I have posted the patterns for these two little girls, on my other blog   They are pdf files and should print out correctly for you. I can no longer find them online anywhere.

Putting in their "two cents' worth"...

Introducing the Penny Loafers. Each has a penny in toe of each shoe, and love to sit around on your shelf, offering their bit of advice or whimsical  wisdom. They are "bean bag" dolls, filled with rice and a bit of bay leaf. If they look somewhat familiar, it's because I used my pindoll faces for them.

I am indebted to Deborah Milstead of North Carolina who graciously shared her pattern for her charming 'Ladies of Ella Moon', which, of course, I promptly mutilated, changing the leg design, and the name. (I always have to tamper with things, you know.)
You can see Deborah's dolls on Cloth Doll Artistry at
