Tillie The Apple Doll

I have completed my First Apple Doll :)

It wasn't as hard as I thought it might be.
The apple head that I had carved (see picture below in previous post), dried nicely.
I put in black beads for the eyes.
I used watercolor paint for the cheeks, eyebrows and mouth.
I followed the tutorial (see post below for tutorial) to make the clothes.
I have carved hands from another apple that I had dried.
I really enjoyed making this doll, it was a lot of fun!

I have decided that her name shall be "Tillie". A name I have always loved.
:) She looks like a "Tillie" to me.

She has her basket of some stitching supplies, and she has her sign demanding your stash! She is a lady with attitude. :)

Here she is!
"Tillie"!
