You can blame Andy Skinner for this......there was a bit of a voodoo thing going on on his Facebook page a couple of days ago and it set me thinking about Voodoo.......this doll is the result!
I looked up MAKING A VOODOO DOLL and discovered that they were usually very simple things, a couple of sticks tied together in a cross shape, I used a couple of coffee stirrers! Then they are wrapped with some sort of stuffing.......I used a length of cotton tape......after that I deviated somewhat and used an old doll head.
Further decoration with beads
The hole in the doll head was filled with feathers from an old shuttlecock.......
the traditional pins to stick in the doll are made with heart beads stuck to dress making pins
Used beads for the eyes......again a traditional thing to use......gives quite the doll quite a stare!
So, who would you Voodoo?
