First of all the fabric looked too pale for an outdoor person so I blobbed more tea on it and made it so wet it spent the rest of the day propped on the kettle to dry:
While the dismembered limbs were drying I embroidered the face, but it was really difficult trying to get it looking neither male nor female- I failed utterly:
For the clothes I tried to go for 'motley' in the Elizabethan sense, but eldest said 'she' now looked more like a 'crazy geisha'...Great!
Off came the coat and I made a tunic. I tied the middle with string with an idea of attaching little felt leaves and flowers to it, like a garland you know?
So there you have it/ him/ her.
Not very Puck-like.
I don't know whether to remove clothing and just turn him/ her/ it into a fairy or try to rescue it further. I have to say its frustrating having what I think is a great idea and then the reality coming nowhere near the image.
Any Bailout Recommendations?
