Treasures of the Gypsy Challenge Doll Finished

Gypsy Maiden with Baby Unicorn
Finally! Got my entry mailed off yesterday, and now I'm in the middle of cleaning up all the bits of material and thread that have somehow gotten all over the house. Fortunately it is a small house.

The doll was made from a simplified version of a Joanne Pinto pattern with some Mimi Winer-inspired face modeling. The unicorn was reduced from a pattern by Lois Boncer. This was a good learning experience. I used minke, lame, and velvet for the first time, and learned I could mend a paperclay horn and make tiny hooves with plaster cloth, and that I could tea-dye three different kinds of lace so that they didn't contrast too much.

Until the next challenge!
