Three "Goth Waldorf" Roses and One Bat Gnome

It's Crafty Thursday! I have four dolls to share with you today.

I imagine the "Goth Waldorf Roses" as a group of creatively-inclined high school girls. Black Rose loves to make music, Blue Rose loves to write plays, and Purple Rose loves to paint pictures and tie-dye clothes. (They are nothing like that book series by what's-her-name. If you don't know what I'm talking about, you've made me happy.) Here is a group photo of the dolls taken from above:



The main reason I don't mind seeing Halloween decorations early is because I really like bats. The Bat Gnome I sewed for the shop is a humorous creation based upon a simpler doll I made for a friend as part of the Five Handmade Items meme.





Do you have a doll idea for the wishlist? If so, please share it in the comments.

Yes! Black Rose is really unusual and appealing. But I like them all (the roses are so sculptural), and I can't wait to see what (who's) next!

Love them! The bat one was so great, how about Native Americans! Very Thanksgiving theme!
I am a decedent of the Blackfoot tribe, my great-grandmother! They were called Blackfoot because of the color moccasins they wore! Other tribes had other distinct things about them, would make a nice set. Also a nice homeschooling project too!

MrsBeccjio: I didn't know your great-grandmother was from the Blackfoot tribe. As someone who is not of a Native tribe herself, I don't think it would be right for me to make Native American dolls, but I certainly admire the work of different Native artisans. I can definitely do Thanksgiving themes relating to harvest, though. Thanks so much!

Tanita and Anamaria: I'm so glad you like them. I haven't forgotten about Elaine Magliaro's "wild rose" either.

LSM: Hospital bills are wretched! I hope the Bat Gnome helps in terms of mood, though. :)

Lovely work, as always. I get your Etsy store updates in my Google Reader, and every time I see a new doll, I think, "Maybe I'll get that one!" They are hard to resist.

They're all adorable but I love the bat one! How about a crow? To misquote Eloise....I'm rawther partial to crows. :)
