End of week projects

This is a few things I did or finished.

I did do the dolls dress and jacket
and cage dolls. bird nests and the lamp shade.The gas can came from our family farm from 50 years ago. I painted it awhile back and never like the shade I had .I did curb shopping found a floor lamp.The shade was all a part I taped it , the base I used for a stand for a mannequin ,another part for a hat stand.Last night I tryed this and like it .The heart I had painted. I'm going to put tin things all around it .The pillows I just closed them.The hanger pocket sew it together, the hanger I got at the dollor store.
The tassel the doll is holding I did finish a few of them. I found the tops at Hobby Lobby and the thrift store. All so worked on the doll face where she had a mark on her cheek. I made the jacket out of some material I had from one I made myself.
The doll dress fit in to the display I have of things with the color wheel. The necklace I bought on Etsy.
I have a couple more dresses to sew.
