Stocking Face #1

An old piece called "Bad Hair Day"- A nylon stocking stuffed with some batting, then sewn with some embroidery floss and a darning needle.   The unfinished back below.

I used to make and sell holiday dolls with stocking faces. It was so much fun watching the face develope. It was good money too!

LOL! Some days feel like this face to me -- all pinched and inflexible. Seriously, it's incredible how you achieved so much expression with no more than a stocking, batting, and needle and thread. Very neat!

The back of her head is how I feel, LOL

I re-pulled a muscle in my lower back and find it hard to sit for too long, I can't bend, I am getting better slowly.

Love this piece.
