Elephant – I made the form out of muslin, and it is beaded throughout in seed beads of all colors. I used poly filament otherwise known as fishing line of 100m 1.8 Kg clear. 0.20mm in diameter. 3 beads at a time in back stitching in case of someone cutting the beads, they would not unravel.

The second photo is of a mini Persian carpet in a wooden frame to keep the canvas taut. It is done in 22 count canvas, with Paternayan yarn single strand. Needlepoint needles # 20-22 in a stabbing back stitch. When all embroidery completed, I leave 2.5cm around the design before trimming. The backing is done in a complimentary color by machine.

The last four photos are of the different types of cloth dolls I make, the first ones are
wearable pin dolls, I make all the form of all dolls in muslin, of skin color cotton fabrics
for faces and limbs. I use all kinds of nice materials for the costumes, yarns for hair,
silks, brocades, and other fabrics suitable for each and every different doll.
I appreciate all her work, but the beaded work is exquisite.
And now she says : I am taking a class from a teacher from England’s Royal School of Needlework online, it is an evening cap from the works of Shakespeare, the one in the photo is the finished one, still on the frame because I have to do the goldwork yet and the edge.
Actual work in progress by Velia!
