Mavis and Nikki

Let me introduce you to Mavis and Nikki this time in doll form, rather than as an embroidery or painting. She is sporting red, stripey stockings and on her feet a pair of fairisle boots and a matching hat . With her faithful doggie Nikki by her side she is all ready for a walk in the park.

Do you like her wild, auburn hair?

                                                             Woof woof!

Here they are together. I used bits and pieces to make them. Nikki/boots/hat are made out of an old jumper, the coat is felt and her hair is some cushion tassels with her body being made from a piece of sheeting! Who said crafting has to cost £££'s!

Back view....hmmm....I wouldn't mind a jacket like that and I will keep an eye out for some stripey tights!

                                                            Little buttons keep his legs on!

This is the real Nikki enjoying herself with her new woodland friends. Those teddies are super big, just the right size to sit on a cosy lap.

  20. She really looks rather elegant - and on a shoestring! I too would love her coat, if you could make once a bit larger for me! (Don't get this Google Plus thingy myself - it's all so complicated!!). xCathy
