Paper Doll Faeries

I have always loved paper dolls ever since I was a kid. Ah those days home from school (supposedly sick) and cutting out dolls and their clothes! I vaguely remember something about "Betsy McCall" in my moms McCalls magazines too. Paper dolls gave way to Barbie eventually but I still love them and now like to make them out of all kinds of beautiful paper and fabrics. These faeries are pretty tiny ( I made them about 8 years ago when my eyesight was better). They are all cut from body pattern pieces and put together with decorative brads (for movement). Would like to make some new dolls but larger and bolder this time. Was thinking of a geisha theme with beautiful robes and accessories.
