Valley of the Dolls

This is Petal, so named for her floral print dress.

We started with a fabric homunculus bought at the crafts store. Then Kelly and I sewed her outfit together, and we sewed a wig out of prepackaged hair. This is, I suppose, a representation of Laura Ingalls Wilder, since Kelly is doing her book report on a biography of that worthy.

But in the end, this looks less like a character from Little House on the Prairie, and more like someone you might see playing shuffleboard on a cruise ship. Still, I had fun making it with Kelly, even if tempers ran thin now and then.
