Woven Tapestry and Needle Felted Doll
Graciella Colmenares started making her "Woven Tapestry and Needle Felted Doll" in July 2014 while she was still in college. After graduation, she had time to finish her doll in June 2015.
Below are pictures of her creating Anabelle her beautiful doll. She was a wonderful student and has her doll hanging on the wall in her home. I'm so proud of her weaving and needle felting ability.
