Snip snip rip rip

When I was in my doll making infancy I had made this doll. I thought it was time now that she disappeared as she was not anything special. So before getting rid of her I cut her hair and embellishments off to recycle. 
Now they adorn this doll. Her head is an old discarded head which went into the bone yard. The shape of her head and her face painting were not quite right. I had to redo her face painting. If you look closely you might be able to see where I have redone it. I had a bit of burlap lying around which I used for her costume. Hair and embellishments are from the old doll. So here she is my half recycled Angel :-). I will just call her Peace I think.


  1. good job with recycling parts of the old doll into the new on :) waste not want not and all that :)

  2. I took apart one of my first dolls the other day. Kept her arms and legs and her dress and i am going to make a better head and body. At the time I didn’t have the right type of stretch fabric for the body. I did feel a bit guilty about disecting her though.

  3. i love the new and improved beautiful doll.

  4. Hello Shashi, she is a beautiful doll, and I love her name. I’m sorry I’ve not been keeping up with you on Facebook recently. Thank you for nominating me for the #challengeonnaturephotography I’m sure I have seven photos I could use, but I’m not sure who I would nominate so I may have to pass for now.
    I hope you had a good Christmas and a very Happy New Year, also hope your mum is keeping well. We had a wonderful time with our visitors from Australia and lots of happy memories to keep us going until we see them again.

  5. Hi Barbara you could just show your pictures I don't think you need to nominate anyone. Don't think rules are that strict:-)
