On January 1st I started a project that stretched my comfort zone. I wanted to make a free standing "doll". I used some wire that Tommy bought me and wrapped it with quilt batting. I used yarn to tie the batting on.

I know, the first pic is upside down, but I took it that way trying to get a good view of the limbs.

I used batik fabric as the covering. I love batiks. I tied the strips on the trunk. I cut the leaves from the same fabric; used fabric paint to make the veins. I then tied all the leaves onto the branches.....all 10 of them.
I used glitter gel pens to draw the face on unbleached muslin.

She still needs some embellishing but everyone who has seen her likes her.
