Olive, booth and tourist

Olive is almost complete. For the most part I am pretty happy with the way she turned out... I do have a few skills I need to improve upon when it comes to sewing seems, but I will get there!

And to see others check out the Flickr page.
I really like that I re-purposed some of the fabric for Olive. Her skirt was once a "hippie" dress that I never wear anymore so I undid the seams and cut out her skirt. The shoes I have had in my stash for over 2 years- I thought they were a fun contrast to the oranges she is wearing up top. I have to decide if she should have blue eyes or brown... What do you think?

It is Friday, and you know what that means!

Oh, and I am totally addicted to JPG Mag- if you haven't gone over and voted for my last entry give it a whirl... And what do you think about this one for the "tourist" theme? If you do give me a thumbs up~

oh Olive is awesome! I'd give her greenn eyes (great with the hair & ties into her shoes...) I've been batting around the idea of making a doll like that for people to knit clothes for.

I think your pic is perfect for tourist.

Oooh, I like the green idea, and it would tie her shoes in nicely wouldn't it! thanks~

Olive is so cute, nice job! I bought her 'Put Together Book' and have the fabric to make a bunny but need to learn to use my sewing machine first.

Olive is too cool. I think green eyes, too.

Thanks for the heads-up on JPG mag. I hope to enter on in the tourist edition, too. I like the one you have chosen.
