Art Doll for Diane

 It's been several weeks since this art doll was completed. I made her for Diane--aka fiddlegirl8--as part of our Invite Your Partner Swap on Craftster.  Here she is in full--she's a flat art doll, meant as a wall hanging.

Close up of her body. Top left fabric is a Christmas fabric (Diane's--and mine--favorite holiday). The gnome represents Diane's avatar, the fox is for woodland creatures. The blue star on red is for her patriotism and the "Jimmy crack corn..." part is because it's something that she is known to say.

I printed out her actual avatar onto fabric for the doll's left leg. The blue fabric above it is  representative of Van Gogh's "Starry Night".

 Mustard seed is embedded into a jewelry finding.

One of Diane's favorite bible verses is Mark 4: 31-32.


  1. I love this doll! There's so much detail, I can't stop looking at her! Nice work, Susan.

  2. This is really fantastic. All of the details you included are so very thoughtful. What a wonderful gift.

  3. Every detail is so thoughtful! It really shows that you put a lot of work into the doll!

    Great piece of personal art, Susan!
