These two dolls are from a pattern called Uma and she is a forest Elf. I made two of them and changed the names to Autumn and Nightshade.

This is Autumn
I used Batiks for her body and clothing. She wears cuffs on her ankles with jewels attached. Her fitted outfit is all wired to resemble some sort of forest plant. All the clothing is wired and quilted except for the cuffs.

Close-up of her jewelry, made with glass beads, semi precious (japanese turquoise) and Swarovski crystals.

This is Nightshade

She is made the same as Autumn, only darker and also bejeweled, she has more turquoise lol.

Here they are together. I love that I can pose them anyway I want.

More poses..

I used eyelash yarn for the hair. I just knitted a patch and sew it on. I sewed beads here and there on the clothing and painted the faces with fabric paint and glittered them.

I painted the faces with Decoart American SoSoft fabric paint. I also used the Shimmering Pearl and the Metallic lines as well. Painting your doll faces make them so much more realistic and natural looking. The paints blends very easily and even a beginner can do it. If you live in Orlando Florida, I will be teaching this doll at the Sewing Studio. I will teach you how to paint a doll face....write to me if you have any questions.
