The first quarter challenges at Cloth Doll Artistry are coming to an end and this was my doll for the Humpty Dumpty Faberge Egg.
I’ve been told he has a bit of an Irish look about him. I think that’s possible. He wasn’t content to sit on a wall given what his ancestors went through doing that, so he’s decided that he’s a stay on your feet kind of egg.
The basic doll is a design by Kathleen Race. The costuming from the shoes to the hat are my own ideas. He did have a pancake face in the basic pattern, but I decided on the inset eyes. He’s a dapper looking guy and now he’s off for his morning walk of course with walking stick in hand to keep his balance. Maybe he’ll find a Mrs. Dumpty. Hmmm, would she want the name of Mrs. Dumpty. ???
