So, I play with dolls!
You know how things happen? You visit a friend and she’s made a wonderful jointed paper doll.
Then, just by coincidence, you visit a second friend and guess what? Yup! Another beautiful doll.
Then you visit a third friend and, holy smokes…she’s got an exquisite mermaid going on!
Well, it doesn’t take much more and you decide you’ve got to have a mermaid/flapper/jointed doll in your life too!
The internet…gotta love it…has a multitude of jointed doll pattern out there. I chose this one.
Made myself a mermaid. Naked of course. Hey, if I was a mermaid I’d so not want to be dragged down by seashell bras and be made a slave to dry people conventions.
Sat her up against my most favourite Nick Bantock’s “Man Descending” on my office desk.
Next I decided to make a flapper. Same pattern. Dressed her in jet beads and fringe. Stood her up against Man Descending.
Man Descending looks pretty happy to me. 😀
The girls are adorable! I want one : )
Aw, thank you Patty, super easy to make. I used some sturdier watercolour paper. 😀
Those are wonderful!! and yes! let’s not be dragged down by the “dry” people, lol (that cracked me up).
😀 Thanks Dawn.
I love it – and who didn’t love to play with paper dolls as a girl?
I did! My aunt used to draw and cut out princesses and taught me how to design their dresses. Later, I drew them and cut them out all the time for my daughters.Don’t we love paper dolls?
Dry people can be so conventional….Love your dolls Veronica!
I know…lol! 😀 Thank you so much Kelly.
