It's Halloween

It's that time of the year when the weather starts to get cold and the days get shorter. The children are celebrating Halloween by dressing up in costumes to go out for trick or treat. We grown-ups who play with dolls will make dolls to reflect the Holiday. It's one of the favorite holidays for doll makers and crafters. The doll club I belong to decided to make a witch as our project for the month. The pattern used would be whatever we chose to use. I used a free pin doll pattern from Mary Tressler's site for my witch's head. I enlarged it and made the rest of the parts myself. I really like the nose which is why I chose this particular pattern. I embellished her with some cob webs and a few spiders for a little pizazz. Neither show up in the photos very well though. I had fun making her. Well, that's it for now. I'm finishing up another project I was commissioned for so I'll be back soon to tell you about that one. Until then.........Happy Halloween!
