Here she is! Calliope and her friend Jack the Jackalope.
She is the jointed paper doll I have been working on! (oooof.... Wiping sweat from brow)
She was a challenge, her being the first. But worth it! I went to the antique store to find vintage sewing patterns to get ideas for her clothing. Then made a prototype of a working jointed doll.
Getting the proportions and joints just right was what took me the longest. Of course... She took her sweet time letting me know her story and who her animal friend would be. And finally she is here!
Meet Calliope and Jack at my Etsy store! Yes, I have reopened my Etsy (go ahead press the button!). It is about time. I know. I will be adding more to my shop steadily as I make new pieces, instead of everything at once. It will be easier for me and give you something to look forward to.
She comes with three sheets and a packet of small brads. Two sheets to cut out and one sheet that tells you her story and gives you instructions.
The cutout pages look like this.....
I am offering 15 % this week on Calliope and Jack, just use the coupon code Calliope2010. (use the code when you check out!) I am doing this partly because it is cyber Monday and partly because I will still be out of town this week and won't be able to mail anything until this weekend. So I want to thank you for your patience.
Hope you like her! And yes... I will be doing more. I loved it!
