Blue Woman With Veil ATC

For my part in our crafting session, I decided to make an ATC because I promised myself I wasn't going to start another doll until I finished the two Icicle Dolls I still have outstanding for a swap.

All the fabrics used were leftover scraps from other people's projects. In addition to the huge amount of scraps my neighbour K gave me last week, another friend gave me twice as many leftovers this week. The more you have, the more possibilities you have for co-ordinating and matching colours. It's wonderful.

I had drawn the face earlier and messed up the mouth, but the eyes were good. I didn't have the heart to toss it out and figured I could use the eyes somehow and, voilà.

The word "misterioso" is Italian for mysterious.

I love the colour.

I always find Charity shops great for finding scraps of material. Also, my local market sells quilting bits which are just the right size for Dotee Dolls.
