Second Comfort Doll - Sophie







This is the second of the two comfort dolls I made. I was inspired by a scrap of Ukranian embroidery I had - this distinctive black and red cross stitch on linen. I used one of the Fimo faces I made recently, beading around it with some small beads reclaimed from a piece of jewelry from the thrift store. I used three small beaded tassels combined for the bottom of the doll. I am really fond of this little one - it was hard to send her away.

I have always been enamoured with all things Ukranian and this doll is named for Sophie, the grandmother of my friend Jacquie. Jacquie and her grandmother introduced me to wonderful Ukranian delights such as perogies and feather tics!
