Blinged Out Amelia the Witch
I call this little girl "Blinged Out Amelia the Witch". She is ready for a night out on her broom dressed in her fancy feather trimmed hat. I added a little feather boa to the top of her hat and thought it made her look like she is a witch from the "upper class" even though she is still primitive with her rusty pin and bell trim on her apron and boots.
Amelia has a needle sculpted nose and mouth and painted on eyes.
This is Amelia's boot with the rusty pin "buckles"
Rusty pins and bell on Amelia's apron and cheesecloth neckscarf. You can see the apron material a little better in the top picture. It is a dyed cheesecloth with black stars stenciled on it.
I usually use a dyed muslin for her dress, but this time (since she is dressing for a night out), I used a fancier material. I bought this remnant while on the "Yard Sale" trip down through Kentucky at a little upholstery shop. The owner said the this material had cost $35.00 a yard, but I bought the little remnant just big enough for Amelia's dress for only $3.00. Quite a bargain for Miss Amelia's dress.
