Black and White Challenge


We had a very interesting Challenge this year at CNYDAG (Central New York Doll as Art Guild). We had to create a doll using 3 colors only: black, white and any one you want. You can use any variation but as long as it recognizable as white and black. I picked a red color as a third color.
I even draw the pattern myself. I started to crochet the wig but ended up with some sort of hat :) Kazakhs used to wear the hats with such shape :)
All dolls that were done were photographed during the meeting. Unfortunately it is too far from me, so, I sent my doll for photo shoot :) , and we also should have a picture of all dolls from this challenge. Couldn't wait to see what other dolls were created.
In the meantime, let me introduce you Naomi, my entry to Black, White and one color challenge.

Have a great day!
Helen

Wow! Love this doll! The colors are stunning with just the touch of red for accent. I think the hat/headress you gave her a was perfect idea. I love that you made your own pattern and it turned out so well. Do you plan on selling the pattern? I think it would be very popular.
