One big family

My mom loves those old fashion dolls that you see on sale at craft shows.Usually its made from just some tea dyed muslin and homespun fabric. Well for mothers day i decided to create a family replica out of dolls. Unfortunately i have a big family with three sisters and a niece. I cut out circles and rectangles for their body parts and traced out shapes out of contrasting material. For their hair i used yarn. me and my youngest sister have curly hair so i tried to make the yarn squiggly to show curly hair. I painted their nose on with orange paint and their eyes are buttons.
