Paper Mache Jack-o-lantern

I have been attempting to make a jack-o-lantern in paper mache. It’s been quite a while since I have worked with paper mache and I’m a bit rusty. Pair that with one arm in a sling and this is the best I have been able to do so far.

I think he might just turn out to be a primitive pumpkin.

Making a doll. Meet Penelope!

Meet Penelope. 

Penelope is a prototype and I have changed the final pattern some but I decided to share her anyway. Here are a few pics of her construction.  Excuse my mess, creativity gets like that. 

Penelope is a primitive style rag doll.
Her arms were attached separately
Attaching her bodice and sleeves
Almost there!
Her hair is made of strips of scrappy fabric and hand sewn in

I hand painted her eyes and shoes and she’s all done!
If you like Penelope she is now available in my Etsy shop and the final version will be available soon. Would you be interested in buying patterns and instructions for dolls like Penelope? I’m trying to decide whether to offer the patterns. Comment below or visit my Facebook page and leave me a message.
