Complete Head Transplant..A Success!

Does anyone remember Princess Langwidere from L Frank Baum‘s Ozma of Oz? She had thirty heads, one for each day of the month, that she kept in individual velvet-lined cupboards in her dressing room. Instead of changing her gown each day, she would change her head. She always wore white, so her outfit wouldn’t clash with her head of choice for the day. Fascinating and frightening all at the same time. I loved loved loved Ozma of Oz. I don’t know how many times we read it when I was a child.

Much like Princess Langwidere, my little Lucy has a new head.

I think it suits her much better than her previous one. She now has hand-quilted ponytails as well. Very fancy.

Lucy is meant to be displayed and loved, but I wanted Lucy to be able to withstand some play. She is made of 100% cotton quilting fabrics that I fused to an additional layer of cotton sheeting for durability. She is decorated with ribbon trims, Rick Rack, and machine appliquéd fabric. I prewashed her fabrics so they wouldn’t shrink later if she needs to be gently spot cleaned and set flat to dry.

Lucy will be in my Etsy shop shortly. More photos of her can be found on Flickr. Please click here to see my available original, one-of-a-kind soft dolls and art toys.
