When I saw the 2015 Hoffman fabric, I saw a belly dancer because of the dangly coins in the print. I added my own dangly coins for her costume and lots of beads.
View from the back.
My doll is named after Naima Okef who was a famous dancer in Egypt.
I tried a new technique for the finish on the chiffon skirt. Tulip Glitter Bond and Glitter. Tested it out on a small piece and, yes, it will work to finish the edge of the skirt and to embellish.
Then I did it on the full fabric laying it on my cutting mat. Glue stuck to the mat! I hung it out to dry and got glue got in places I didn't want it and on the chiffon it showed.
Plan B. Bought a large quilting hoop, inserted the fabric which was then elevated from the table surface. Worked perfect.
Did I mention glitter everywhere!
Next problem is the 80+ degree weather - the glue took a really long time to cure.
All in all I am pleased with Princess Naima. She should have arrived at Hoffman yesterday.
Hoping she is selected to travel with the 2015 Hoffman trunks.
p.s. I have most of the glitter in my house cleaned up!
