Here is a doll I have been wanting to make for a long time!
The character Jane Hudson from the cult horror movie 
'What Ever Happened to Baby Jane' played by Bette Davis!

She was alot of fun to make and is up in my Etsy store now ::

Linda, Ned and Queen Bee

 Linda Burney





 Ned Kelly



Beyonce

Another three commissioned dolls for the installation later this year!
These have been such a great challenge, keeping me awake at night for sure.
Linda Burney's cloak is made from faux suede with free form fabric paint.
Ned Kelly has his slicked back hair, long beard and removable helmet!
And Beyonce - well - she was the most difficult..

Making three of each doll has taken a while,
  it will be surreal to go back to making only one at a time!

Frida Faces





In between custom orders and commissions,
 I have updated the shop with a few new Frida Kahlo brooches.
These are one of my favourite things to make, 
with their free motion sewn faces, wool rug and fabric flowers and bead earrings.
Each one comes in its own fabric covered box, so that you can keep them safe between wears!

(I've also added a couple of new Prince brooches too)




More VIPs

Edith Cowan

Frida Kahlo

David Bowie

A few more VIPs to add to the list from my last post!
The more difficult dolls to make are to come..

Very Important People

Harvey Milk

Malala Yousafzai

Bob Brown

Eddie Mabo

Here are a few of the dolls I've been working on for an installation at The Museum of Australian Democracy later this year. I am making 3 of each, so it is taking a while!
I'll share the other VIP dolls with you as I finish them.
