Mallory and the giveaway
Here is Mallory and her baby doll. I did this sculpt a while ago and never finished her. She reminds me of a sweet and gentle little girl that has no cares in the world. She takes good care of her dolly and does whatever her mom wants her to do!!!
JK - that sounds too good to be true. Well it is! She is only a doll and you can make up anything when you are the artist!!!
She is one of my larger sculpts - if she were standing she would be about 22" or so. She is dressed in silks - white taffeta on top and pink seersucker for the skirt. The ribbon and roses trim is all silk - love this stuff - I use it often.
The baby doll is another sculpt I have had laying around here. Her top is bought - love finding little stuff I can use. Have you ever tried to sew tiny clothes??
I made her little bloomers to match the skirt. I used some hand-dyed lace and made her hat! Lots of hand sewing went into that!
Her pearl headband is made from Austrian Swarovski pearls. Love them too.
I made her wig out of mohair (that comes from goats - really!). Have you seen auburn colored goats?? It's the newest thing.
So now if you comment on Mallory by the end of the day Wednesday August 18th I will do a giveaway to one of you - a full set of greeting cards (my own of course). You can see them on my website: www.sarahniemela.com. If you are the winner you will have to send me your real address when I contact you.
If you are the only one who comments - well, that was easy!
