Cassandra - New Needle Felted OOAK Handmade Witch Art Doll

Cassandra - 18" Needle Felted Handmade OOAK Witch Art Doll

Sometimes Cassandra is a little apprehensive about being a witch.  She's not too sure she likes casting spells, turning princes into frogs, or flying around with black ravens. For sure she doesn't like icky spiders or black bats. Most of all she doesn't like living in a dark, gloomy cave.  Just about the only thing she likes about being a witch is being able to fly wherever she wants to go. And fly she does.  Just to get away.

Cassandra's inner body is fully bendable and is sculpted out of Sunflower's alpaca roving from Rock Garden Alpacas Fiber and parts of her outer body, legs, arms, face, and hawk sculpted nose are felted from a beige mix from Rock Garden Alpacas Fiber combined with lime green roving.  Her cheeks are blushed with a green chalk.  Her black boots were made using black alpaca roving from Rock Garden Alpacas Fiber and are tied in bows with purple ribbons. Her wild black and gray colored hair is felted with Masquerade's raw washed roving from Rock Garden Alpacas.  Her black and white eyes are needle felted with black alpaca roving and white prime roving from Rock Garden Alpacas Fiber. Her mouth, eyebrows and under eye wrinkle lines are needle felted with black alpaca roving.  Purple chalk is blushed over her eyes.

Her needle felted pants are made from purple roving and her needle felted shirt is a green, purple, and beige roving blend mix. Her dress, vest, and witches hat are all hand sewn using blanket stitching. She is wearing a purple colored wool vest with two front pockets and purple ribbon tie. Her black felt witches dress is gathered at the neck, waist, and wrists and has triangle fringed hems for the bottom of the dress and sleeves. Purple ribbons are tied in bows at the gathering of her wrists. A black felt witches hat sits atop her head. Cassandra is sitting on a white gourd with black stripes and has a black raven on her left leg and a green frog on her left hand.

Cassandra hopes she didn't just turn someone into a frog, but she's unsure..... What do you think?
