Two Wild and Crazy Girls

Two wild and crazy girls

Ethel

Gert, her nose isn't wrinkled in real life.

This afternoon I had so much to do, but didn't feel like doing any of it. Ever get that way? It was warm and cozy in my sewing room so I decided to give it a straighten and clean. I have one more sewing commitment for this year and decided I should get ready for that.

All these lovely bright scraps were left over from my orange quiltie squares. Hmmm... what to do, what to do? I decided a few snippet dolls were in order. These two lovely ladies just sort of sewed them selves. I used the left over yo yo's I had made as flowers in the quilt to give the smaller one a flapper type hat, and to decorate their dresses. I love their bright colors! I think one might be going to Connecticut to brighten a friends Studio. She was so generous to make a lovely doll to brighten my life when I broke my foot.

You make this sound so easy..like you just threw these little beauties together. They are wonderful! Glad you opted to make dolls rather than doing your other stuff.

These dolls are awesome! So bright and colorful, but serious, too. Your use of snippets and yo-yos is well done.
