Macabre Christmas Gifts

My sister and I pick a theme every Christmas and this year the theme was Macabre. I made her a rag doll which I sewed from an old curtain. She was then died with tea to antique her. I ordered resin teeth (you’d be amazed what you can find on Amazon), which I sewed and formed into her mouth. Behind her button eyes is brown felt. Her dress was hand sewed from an old pillow case. Her yarn hair I knotted. She was then set aside while I splashed red and black paints to make her look a tad bit murderous. She was put into a box which was written: There is no going back. Once that was opened inside was a card that said: My name is Susie. Under tissue paper she was revealed. It was such a fun craft and my sister loved her.

Creepy cute, but it made me giggle. How do you two pick your themes?

Firstly, does she make stuff as well? Because then I sort of want to know what she made :stuck_out_tongue:
Secondly, great macabre doll :smiley: Sounds like you two have a lot of fun gifting each other, and making it themed Christmas is a clever plan
