Gwyneth: A Cloth Doll for Jenny

It’s amazing how you bring out each doll’s individual character from their facial expressions.. Gwyneth has a lovely smile and wonderfully expressive green eyes.

Vaudeville Hippie

This OOAK cloth doll is Gwyneth and has been inspired by a Welsh doll, wearing traditional Welsh costume.  She is a part of my birthday challenge and  was created for my stepmother, Jenny.

I chose a Welsh theme because my dad and Jenny have just moved from the Welsh village of Caersws to the Welsh town of Twywn, in the county of Gwynnedd (which gave inspiration to her name of Gwyneth) and Saint David’s Day coincided with my decision making of the type of cloth doll I would create for Jenny.

This is my modern interpretation of a Welsh doll and I had to adapt the look slightly to fit in with the fabrics and supplies that I already had.  I even had the little wooden daffodil brooch holding Gwyneth’s shawl together!
