I had this idea to take dowel rods and create fireworks from them. I had my husband cut the dowel rods down and drill a hole so I could put glue down in the hole and stuff some jute/twine in it. With most of my dolls, I start out with an outline template and then I add the face without having any real plan and just see how it turns out. I thought she turned out to have a very sweet, old looking face.
I seem to feel more inspired to create the grungy gals at the moment, but I have a whimsical dolly in the works as well.
