Fairy challenge doll




I have been really busy today, packing bags with display props and dusting off my dolls, all in preparation for Sunday's doll exhibition. As I was fussing about I took these pics of my Fairy Challenge Doll...


This was a great challenge organised by the Australian Cloth Doll Association (ACDA) last year... whereby each person in the challenge (aka fairy godmothers) made up a doll and passed it around to four other Godmothers, to complete the outfit.


So first, we each made a doll, gave her a face and hair... and underwear. Then the next Godmother created a petticoat and corset. This was followed by an under dress and shoes by the second Godmother. And an overdress followed by the third. Finally, the fairy was blessed with wings by her fourth Godmother before being put on show for the big "reveal" and going back home with her Mum!


So this is my doll before she was sent on her journey:



And on her return...


Her hair got a little messed up from being passed around so often, so I gave her a hat and she's much happier. It's amazing what a hat can do for a bad hair day! :-)

Oh, she is so beautiful. I love her little hat. It gives her an elegance. Sounds like it was great fun. Have fun at the doll exhibition. And don't forget the camera since we all want to see pictures.

Hi Vikki,
oh, she is gorgeous. I could do with a fairy godmother, however I would lend it to Kerryanne today.
Good luck with the show and have fun.
Hugs, Anna

Hey Vikki! Hmmm ... hat hint for bad hair day duly noted! ;0) It must have been hard to invest so much time into making the dolly and then let others dress her - or maybe I'm just a bit of a control-freak when it comes to my creations! :0) She looks wonderful, though, so obviously the travel agreed with her! Bear Hugs! KRIS
