Elvis Spirit Doll
When I saw this fabric in the store, I knew I had to make a doll in the spirit of Elvis. He has the usual crystal (on the hanging music note) and sage is inside with the stuffing, both for positive vibrations and energy. I hand-embroidered his face with many tiny stitches, and his beads are all Czech glass seed beads of various sizes. His belt buckle is made of a silver button surrounded by bead stacks to hold it on. He's a hanging spirit doll with no legs or weight for standing, perfect since Ed Sullivan didn't show Elvis' legs either. This was fun to make, it just makes me smile. Back of doll is pictured below. He is now in my Etsy shop.
PS: Blogspot hasn't been allowing the usual double-click to super enlarge photos, but I've found if I "right-click" on a photo instead and choose "Open Link in New Window", I can then click again for super enlarged detail.
