A Retro Style Spun Cotton Bat Girl Comes to Life!
It's been quite a while since my last blog post (especially sharing anything I've created!). It's been a busy, busy summer and I've also been learning more and more about the business side of things (including how to use Pinterest wisely for business - I love Pinterest so the extra work is worth it). Don't get me wrong though, there's been lots of creating going on too!
Since I'm no longer on Instagram, I have to remind myself to take work-in-progress photos on occasion to share with my subscribers...but I want to be better about doing so on my blog, as well.
So, first up.....a retro style bat girl ornament!
I think she's my largest ornament, so far..?? I had her in mind for a bit since I'd really like to try a few large spun cotton dolls and she's not far off from one. I started with her base which consists of lots of wire, foil, cotton and thread.
Anddddd....here she is completed! Her cape got a coating of black German glass glitter, and a dark blue ribbon ties it on nicely at her neck. She also holds a little bat friend (in a bow tie, of course), who dangles upside down from her hand.
My only wish is that I'd added more freckles after she got her bandit mask, since it covered up so many of them. But overall, I love her!
