странны сестры - The Weird Sisters

Here are my dolls for the Yahoo Beaded Art Dolls group matroyshka challenge. Introducing the Weird Sisters. I've made six of them so I'm not sure that I'll be able to finish them all by May, but I'm going to try. I'm quite excited about them because they are going to be so fun to create! : )

Got them all sewn together this weekend and started beading the big one today. I did the face before sewing the doll together. It's done in size 13 and 15 beads.

I'm hoping to be able to so the smaller faces in beads as well but we'll see when I try.

I really like those fabric markers for drawing the designs. No bleeding and they are really easy to see.

I can't wait to see them finished. I adore them. I have mine sewed together, but no idea on where they are headed. Your face is perfect.
