I'm re-posting one of my favorites that was lost when I accidentally deleted my first blog, this Spirit Doll that I made for our daughter. I started by making a large 15" crazy quilt block, folded it in half right sides together, traced and cut out the doll shape, then turned it before stuffing. It's embellished with crazy quilt stitches, bead embroidery and a shisha mirror. There's a Swarovski crystal hanging with the beads from one arm and a sprig of dried sage imbeded in her stuffing, both for positive energy. The face is hand-embroidered with many tiny stitches. When making a doll from a crazy quilt block, there's no telling how she will look until she's turned right side out. Each doll is different, and that element of surprise is fun!
