Meet Fidel. I created him from a pattern by Sylvia Schorr.
Fidel was created for a doll club challenge. We have a challenge every fall and for the challenge this year we had a member pick a fabric and we were challenged to make a doll using the fabric. Fidel's torso and sleeves are made from the fabric. He is a little jester, just about 12 1/2 inches tall
when seated. His hat and vest are made from felt and embellished with beads. His pantallons are blue velvet with a black tulle overlay.Otherwise he is all cotton. His shoes are painted on with silver metallic paint.
Fidel is having a great time entertaining all the other dolls in my studio.
He is quite the ham!
