Ghostie Girl Simcha and Hugo


Here is Ghostie Girl Simcha and her pet spider Hugo.  I started her and four others last year and didn't finish them.  Well... they're part of the creative program and they must live. 


Simcha's body is needle felted over an armature.  Her tights, black shoes, and top are needle felted.  There are bead buttons on her Mary Jane's.  She's got black cotton bloomers and a embroidered wool vest.


Her eyes are needle felted, her eyebrows and mouth are made of embroidery floss.  I did a blanket stitch around the edges of her vest and also stitched a spider's web.  She has glitter spiders all over her vest.


You can see more of the embroidery and the web.  Hugo has a red flower on his collar.  Her hair is dyed wool that is felted onto her head.  Her cotton skirt, as you can see, has many spiders and webs on it.  I was going to name her Arachne but that's so typical.  Simcha and Hugo are on a mission for fun.


Hugo is made of metallic black pom oms, metallic black chenille stems for his legs, and googlie eyes.

My first new doll on my new shelf.  Is this great or what?!

Your Ghostie Girl doll is so adorable! I love the designs on her outfit. But I have a question; is the line of thread between her eyes supposed to be her mouth or her nose?

she's adorable!! I love Hugo- who doesn't wish they had a pet spider to walk??!! Does she have a key dangling from her wrist too? Her smile is just too sweet- like she's thinking up a bit of mischief :) Great new shelf to fill with creations too!

That's how long it takes to start a new habit. I'm kind of settled on my so-called work schedule and know which days I can do creati...
