Recycled doll

This is Blue Belle... she is made from recycled and found materials. She had a difficult birth and has a completely remade head, but I am happy with her now.

From this photo, you can see that she has a ball of string for a head, and flower brads for her eyes and mouth.

Her body is a knitting needle She has a necklace made from found trim. A wonderful little book makes her upper body. I embellished this with old stamps, flowers and torn images... Her arms are made from a very cool piece of pleated material someone gave me. I wrapped it in the opposite direction as the pleats which gave it more body, then wrapped it with wire. There is also wire inside. It is difficult to see here, but her hands are cool hearts made from wire.
