March Doll Club - Let the Doll Travels Begin!

Here are all the traveling dolls for our 2012 Traveling Doll Challenge. 
This is the start - body with head and face.  It is so much fun to see how they look when completed.

Next is arms and legs!

2012 Traveling Doll

Here is the start of my 2012 traveling doll for Doll Club.

We had so much fun last year with our traveling dolls, we decided to do it again.  We each bring the start of a doll - body and  head with face.  She (he) has to have a bag to travel in, a name and a story.  For me that is the hard part!!

The patterrn "Gypsy"  is by Debbi Bain.  The pattern makes up well and should work for this project.  I don't think mine will be a gypsy but I haven't decided yet. 

I used colored pencils and chalk to do her face.  I'm pleased with how she turned out.  Feel like I am improving on faces.  Her nose is a little crooked but then no one in real life has a perfectly symetrical face.    I put her head on a bit tilted so maybe no one  will notice
................well except I just told everyone!!

Will post pictures as we go along.  The transformations are amazing.  It is such fun.
