Black Cat Art Doll

I made this for @Immaculata in the Halloween Advent Swap. It’s a little black cat doll. I sculpted its head in super sculpey then covered it in some black velvet. I glued down the velvet and stitched it closed along the sides. I then cut holes in the fabric around the eyes to reveal the painted eyes beneath. I made a simple soft body in muslin fabric then made an outfit that I slipped on over the body and gathered the ends around the paws that I had made soft with the same velvet I covered the head in. I made a felt treat bag and filled it with batting then topped it off with glue and beads to suggest candy. There is a loop at the back for hanging. I am a huge proponent of putting things on the walls.
I enjoyed making this piece so much.

It’s so perfect! The details are brilliant. His little bag full of candy. The buttons on his suit. The ruffles, the gold lace.

Wow, you do such amazing work! What a great idea to cover him in velvet. And that outfit you made is adorable. You must’ve put a ton of time into this and it shows in all the details!
