I looked at it again yesterday. It wasn't a very nice day weather wise and I was at a loss as to what to do with myself. I flipped through the book, as one does, and decided to try one of the smaller projects in the book....Crazy Quilt Soft Doll - The Dreaming Maiden.
The face is embroidered so that was a challenge on such a tiny face.....approximately 1 1/8 inches. The mouth in particular... so tiny....done in satin stitch.
This is my piece so far...after much picking out and a few swear words.
I've learned a lot so far and will use what I've learned the next time I do this. There will be a next time as this is really lots of fun.
One thing is that I'd do the face as a separate piece from the neck. I think it would be more visually appealing.
The crazy quilting comes in when I make the bodice and the skirt. I have lots of small pieces of fabric to choose from so really I just have to decide on a colour scheme.
The hardest part for me will be the embellishing I think. I'm going to have to hone up on my embroidery stitches. I 've been looking through Pinterest to get some ideas and I set up a board for crazy quilting.....http://www.pinterest.com/mytategallery/crazy-quilting/....to gather ideas for future projects. There are some very talented needlework artists out there.
