Well, Amelia’s ugly girl is almost finished. I just need to stitch on the flower and add the spare eye to the other hand and she’s all ready to wrap and stick under the tree. Amelia hasn’t seen her yet and I am looking forward to her discovering it on Christmas morning. I made a late change to the design by adding a tooth – at Amelia’s request. Here’s the original drawing again:
While I haven’t made an exact copy (which perhaps would have been nice – a little like Lizette’s work) she is soft and cuddly and similar enough to an Ugly Doll, which I think is what Amelia was trying to capture in her drawing anyway. Now I just need to finish Lily’s doll and we’re set. It’s taking me so long this year!
