I had a buzzing in my brain for a while to make some art dolls. I have been pushing it aside...cause lets face it I have plenty to do. But I woke up one morning and I just didn't want to ignore it another I set out that day and made my new friend...Ruby-Rose.

I gathered the supplies that have been swarming my head as to what I wanted her to be made of...old quilts, vintage lace, doilies, chenille, buttons, and I even printed a photo that I took in Paris onto muslin. Then I was ready to start playing. 

I am a big doodler...(not sure that's a word) lol... but I love to go back over my art work when I'm done with black pen and doodle.  And I found myself wanting to do the same thing with this I went with it. I stitched her together with black thread....and doodled my heart out!!!
The back of Ruby-Rose.
She is a flat Doll that I just I decided I wanted her to have hair...I added fun fibers in the seam line when I was stitching her closed. 
....and I added a tattoo on the back of her head so it wouldn't seem so blank..hehe!!! 
Yep...I am pretty happy with how she turned out!!! I will totally be making more!!! I have all kinds of ideas rolling around in my head now!!!  Not sure I made it better by getting it out of my system... I think I just might have made it worse...cause now I want to make a whole pile of dolls!!!! HELP!!! lolololol....snort!!!!
I took this photo so you could get an idea of Ruby-Rose's size..... like her creator...she is curvaceous, colorful, and spunky!!!!!!

As always THANK YOU for stopping by
your comments mean the world to me... I love hearing from you all.
Have an AWESOME-SAUCE day!!

Reading this was very inspirational. There are so many "some day" projects that never see the light of day. So many things to do "when there is time". So glad you decided that the due date was come and that Ruby Rose came into existance. Sharing this piece and the process behind it has given me the kick I need to get moving.

She is wonderful sweetie! I especially love the back! The way you stiched around the everything like someone would do with a pencil on paper was pure genius!!!!!
