To go with the doll's house size dolls I make, I thought it was time to add 'The Three Bears' into the mix.
So here is my first Mama Bear prototype. I'm still tweaking the pattern for the head but I am delighted with her wardrobe.
Every lady of the house needs a chatelaine.
Check fabric is great for stitching straight borders.
The green wool shawl jacket is all one piece, and the sleeves are sewn into the jacket as well.
There isn't a lot of space for decorative embroidery but just enough to have fun.

For the last month I have taken a break from my crewel embroidery to work on a new style and subject. It isn't really stumpwork, more a Janet variation of stumpwork embroidery.
The wings and halo are stitched in separate pieces, then assembled on a backing fabric.
The doll is dressed and embroidered, then added to the background piece.
