Zinnia Had a  Tea Party 2

This doll suitcase started out with a Zinnia challenge.  Zinnia had put a 2 inch insulated rope on my desktop. What I am going to do with this, I thought?  I pulled the cord apart and found this blue crepe-like paper inside. I, then, made the above doll out of Sculpey and dressed her with the paper.  Then I remembered seeing on Pinterest the tiniest knitted doll clothes and I knew that I would probably never have the chance to buy them.  So, I thought, I would just have to try to make some out of this tiniest knit fabric I had in my stash.  I cut small rectangles out of the knit, colored them with marker and added bunka, beads, bows and lace.  I made the suitcase out of several rectangular layers of card stock and covered them with fabric.  I glued the dolls and clothes into the case and added a bear by Barbra Meyer.  I placed a naked doll on top of the case to remember the toddler days when Zinnia immediately undressed any new doll  never to redress the doll again.

This little pink convertible, another gift from Liz Dieleman, reminds me of a Barbie car.

Thanks for visiting!

No party is complete without presents.  The stack of blocks on the left is an Art of Mini kit and was purchased at a show.
