Celebration Give-Away

I’m celebrating! There are now over 100 followers to my blog! Thank you to all my readers for your support and encouragement. To honor all of you who read PlayfulStitching, I will be giving away a spirit figure. She comes from my Sweet Potato series, a group of dolls whose bodies are drawn from actual sweet potatoes. She embodies several of my passions: doll making, embroidery, and felting.

sweet potato flat dollLittle Flame is a flat doll designed to hang on a wall. Her body is made of needle felted wool and silk and is embellished with embroidery and shiny trinkets. Her face is pen and colored pencil on fabric. She is 10″ long including the tail.

Everyone who comments by midnight July 12, CST, one week from now, will have their name drawn by lottery to win Little Flame.

    She’s lovely. I’ve always wanted to try felting. It looks so fun. The embellishments almost make her look like a mermaid with a tail and a little fin on the side.

  22. Patricia says:

    I have made many of your dolls but have never seen your Sweet Potato collection. Little Flame is
    beautifully mysterious, or shy. You have inspired me to stretch my imagination to try something
    outside the two arms/two legged dolls. Thanks for sharing your work with us.

    • Which of my dolls have you made? I always love to see pictures.

      • Patricia says:

        I have made a variety of ‘Wild Things’ for baby gifts. They are always well received and loved. l should have taken photos but never thought of it at the time. Do you ever have classes/patterns for your Sweet Potato collection?

  23. Maryvonne says:

    I love what you do. I’ve been reading your blog for a little while now and am amazed at how life like your dolls can be – especially the old ladies! LOL

  24. Her eyes are full of emotion, she has secrets to tell of the earth that she comes from! Her body is woman intensified.
    Congrats on all your followers!
    Our creativity is what keeps our hearts and minds full!
