The Witches of Apex

Sharon Stewart of Liberty Rose always has the cutest patterns and it’s tons of fun to take classes from her.  I recently took her Wilomena Witch class, and this was the result (the black cat was made at a different time):

This is a basic doll body stuffed with a mixture of sand and sawdust in the base (to give it weight), and then fiberfill for the rest.  We used tulle and fancy netting for the skirt, and of course got crazy with the embellishments.  I was so inspired after this class I went home and made three more witches!

I now present the Witches of Apex – Wendy, Winifred, and Willow:

I can’t decide which one is my favorite.  I’d like to add more embellishments, Sharon always has tons of great stuff to use for decoration.  My supplies are more limited – but I did think I was pretty clever for buying the Halloween confetti that has bats, spiders, and pumpkins, and using those as accents.  Something for a shawl or brooch would also add more variety.

I also don’t know what I am going to do with so many witches!
