Some details

Titania is the Tilly in the Tub pattern by Christine Treleaven reduced to 70% and dressed. Her blanket is a piece of hand dyed cheese cloth and the feathers are a packet from Spotlight glued on. I painted the silk for her nighty and smocked it and then embroidered the ribbon roses and leaves. Her hair is a wool/silk roving wrapped around foam rollers and sewn on like beads. Her bank is a cardboard box filled with the foam stuff plumbers used and some extra shaping done with toy stuffing. Covered with a piece of my own handdyed cotton and cheap flowers from Neds etc. I am going to do some more work on her bank as The SA Embroiderers Guild have asked for her for the display in March at The Botanical Gardens

Thank you for the pictures of Tatina, as when I got to the dolls at the craft fair there were a lot of people around, and I didn't get back there.
