Getting dressed

More progress on the warrior woman:

A skirt made from a scrap of discarded fabric.

A breastplate fashioned from acorn cups and scraps of bark.

Seashell shoulder pads.

All needlefelted.

Missed another deadline...................

I started this for the Art Dolls Only Monthly Challenge - April, Warrior Woman. This is as far as I got before I ran out of time!

First wrapping on a wire armature, headless but with hands!

I really haven't done much at all lately. I think it's been a combination of;  a really dull, wet and dreary winter, losing all my lovelies to the lure of the sun, sand and surf 'Down Under' and having to walk their dog every day on the South Downs! Anyway, I think my "MOJO" may be returning. I plan to finish this one, I've been messing about tidying up the sadly neglected workroom and I've just heard that we've been able to get hold of a tent for the Lammas Festival this year, so I need to get a wriggle on!

First layer of colours needled on and a rough head shape.

Next will be a face, fastening on the head and lots and lots of adding fibres and poking!

Still Poking!

Needle felted creature number two:

here's a close-up


And here's number three:

and a close-up of his pretty face!

I'm quite pleased with these, but I think they need more STUFF, in the way of costume or accessories.
Also, if I want these type of needle felted dolls to stand I will have to use much heavier wire or attach to a base.
