Herb Challenge Dolls

Here are a few of the dolls that our club brought to the May luncheon with River City for the Herb Challenge.  First is Martha's doll, Cha-Cha Cilantro!  She wears actual dried cilantro leaves in her headdress, each leaf individually wired with great care.

Next is Katie's dandelion doll, Dande's Dance. The leaves this time were scanned and printed on silk, then cut out with a heat tool. Her grass base is upholstery fringe, hand-sewn into a beautiful lawn!

Last are Andrea's little flower fairies, Chamomile and Calendula, made with Sally Mavor's pattern from her Felt Wee Folk book.  They are about 4" tall and wear real acorn caps above their felt tunics and faux petal skirts.
