2 new “dolls”

okay….my second doll is named “abe”! abe sports a “smiths” t-shirt and red & white tube socks! he’s made from cloth & paperclay & painted with acrylics & a fabric marker. i have attached some yarn to the back so he can hang on the wall (i think he looks best hanging!). here’s some pics […]
