This is the White Spirit Doll--at least it's the front. It is made the same way I made the Not Quite Pink one--on fabric with stable-in-all-directions interfacing under it. It is 4.75 inches tall and 3.5 inches across the arms. I think there are 28 different kinds of beads on this doll.
When I thought of making a white doll, I didn't know whether there would be enough difference in the beads to show a pattern. But I think it turned out pretty well. Who knew there were so many kinds of white? The Yarn Harlot, that's who.
It actually looks quite lacy in spots. The bottom part of the doll is covered with sequins, with a tiny gilt-lined bead on top. This is the first time I put sequins on any of my beaded pieces. I will try that again.
This is the most organized or planned beading I've ever done. (I'll try that again, too!) It's interesting to compare it to the Not Quite Pink Spirit Doll (previous post) and to the October BJP page. See the October 24 post and the October 1 rant for my mixed feelings about pink and the reason my pink is not quite.
Next will be stitching back to front, stuffing, and putting the beaded edging around it.
So now I've got this humongous stash of white beads. What to do? What to do?
