This little harlequin dancer is sitting on my worktable waiting for a face. That’s always the hard part.
I started with the doll parts and some fancy red and gold paper that became her tights.
Then she got a skirt.
I started with some organza and cut two layers. the upper layer is notched and then the edge is finished with a blanket stitch and some gold beads. Getting the beads to sit just right was a bit fiddly and I had to wear my reading glasses to see what I was doing. I don’t think I’ll try this with smaller beads!
