Dotee #2 - Ladybug

Let me start by saying the colors are all off on this. That bright orange is actully red and a deep red not an orange red. Please meet my Dotee #2. Her name is Ladybug because of the fabric I used for the body of the doll. Yes, I do have a collection of insect fabrics (you've seen two of them). More about Ladybug after the photos :)

The ladyblue fabric is actually quite beautiful. It's a buttery yellow with deep red beetles. The skirt fabric is also a buttery yellow, albeit a bit brighter, and it has very small sparkles. I added the larger, red "gems". Truth be told, I was trying to make a tootoo (spell?) because I wanted ladybug ballerina.

I keep looking at Dot's blog and intending to make a beaded, smaller doll with more intricate work and less glue gun but these keep coming out of my hands. I guess I just need practice and better eye sight for beading.
