Meet Sadie

Remember last month when I made Hildegard?  If you don't here is the post: Hildegard

Last weekend I made her sister Sadie. 

Boy she looks like she has some gigantic feet is this picture!

Sadie didn't want to be a Halloween doll.  Once I painted in her mouth she asked me in a very Cockney accent if she could just be an "every day doll".  I said no problem.   Then she asked if she could have a mushroom on the pocket of her apron.  I said sure and found this cute transfer. 
As I was stitching this up I heard a very french voice say "Mademoislle, if you wouldn't mind, could I have a red and pink hat?"   So I made the hat pink and red to please the mushroom.  After all, he's the one who has to wear it everyday. 
This weekend I am going to work on some kind of shoes for Sadie.  I'm thinking some brown felt. 
She already looks right at home!

Have a great Hump Day!

I think that's the cutest little stitched mushroom ever! Great job on Sadie! You have quite a talent.
Hope you're having a great week Linda!

She even has her hand in that pretty green bowl.....is there candy in there? Cookies? anything? ;o)

The mushroom is the perfect touch.

Hugs,

Funny girl...listening to voices in French! Very cute doll...and of course I love the mushroom on her apron. You could make her felt maryjanes...I never had them as a child. Don't make the same mistake with Sadie! =D
