Marie Half Doll Supply Swap


In the Marie Antoinette group, we're doing a fun swap
where we're swapping beautiful supplies to create a half doll.


We were to create a beautiful pouch or bag to hold the supplies for our partner.

This is the bag I created for my partner Melanie.

I had so much fun sewing this. I am not a seamstress,
but I've really become very interested in sewing lately.


Melanie chose a cream color palette which I had alot of fun putting together.


I also chose a cream color palette for the goodies I received from Terri.

She took this gorgeous vintage lingerie pouch, and added a beautiful
pleated ribbon across the front. She also added two vintage flowers,
and a gorgeous ribbon rose that she made.

Terri does the most amazing things with ribbon!

(it's been gloomy here lately, so I'm having trouble taking pics. the pouch is actually cream)


Here are the beautiful goodies Terri sent me.

Thank you Terri for these wonderful, beautiful goodies.

I. can't. wait! to start working on my doll!


Our beautiful supplies came from our partners, but we were to supply
our own half doll. I couldn't find a vintage doll that I really liked. So
I was excited when I found this beautiful unpainted bisque Marie doll.

I'm still trying to decide if I want to paint her, or leave her as is.

What do you think?

Either way, she is going to be my first project after Christmas!

Hi Debi, Your half doll is beautiful! I have never seen one like that, I would leave her like that, she will be beautiful in all cream. I can't wait to see her finished. Thanks for sharing! Hugs, Terri
