Also had not planned any arms, yet at this stage, seems to need them. So am thinking of how to add some vine-like arms or limb like arms. Probably will either felt over a wire or wrap a wire with yarn and shape. Possibly some curled yarn. Will see how it develops.
To refresh a bit - the concept challenge was to create a work showing who we admire. My personal take on this was to create a doll showing the core qualities in the women, past and present whom I admire. That boiled down to: a female figure that is nurturing, caring about others, actively doing good; with very clear self, able to persue own dreams, flexible, true to themselves (integrity, honesty, ethical).
So a woman who does not loose herself in giving, yet gives even more and cares tremendously about others because she has a strong inner core.
I doubt anyone else will immediately see all of that in this doll, not sure I do either. But the goal is to try it. So am going there.
This is the back - beading complete.
