Drive by posting to show off the dotee I finished last night.
Poorly lit kitty at that. It was late when I snapped these pics but I didn't want to wait to document her, lest I forget.
Kitty doll made from kitty print fabric. I love this fabric. Best part is, I only had to use a square about 5 x 10 ish to make it. So just a corner off the YARD of this fabric. I want to hoard this print forever, I love it that much. I did the "sew on a folded piece" technique (lazy sewing for the win) and the tail was the bit of fabric left after I cut the sewed cat shape out with the pinking shears. I like the funky free form tail with a few wee eyes peeping out on it.
I made the face to mimic the faces on the printed cats. Giant eyes and triangle nose. I did add a wee tiny mouth because a doll without a mouth freaks me out. The eyes are embroidered on felt then glued on.
I debated adding a collar or bow or something but decided it distracted from the print on the fabric.
A pair of twin dotees and (hopefully) a dinosaur dotee.
