Domino Doll - I feel 6 feet tall.....

This is an Altered Domino with a sewing theme, titled: I feel 6 feet tall...


This is my submission for the Altered Domino Doll Swap...(If you are interested in joining the Altered Domino & Other Altered Game Pieces Group, please send me a Flickr message).



The body - Image of measuring tape Mod Podge on top of a vintage wooden domino


Skirt - Part of an actual pattern piece with Modge Podge layered over the tissue to give it some body and strength.


Belt: Piece of lace & tiny button.


Arms & Legs: Beads with small snaps for hands and larger snaps for feet.


Face: Image from one of my vintage sewing patterns from my Personal Use Only - Sewing Flickr set. Face is attached to wooden disk that is inserted within a large button.


Basket: Purchased at a craft store.


Contents of basket:

Pattern is a mini copy from my Personal Use Only - Sewing Flickr set. I used, both the front side and backside of the pattern envelope.

Folded ribbon to look like a bundle of fabric.

Created a miniature pin cushion (the tomato version), and cut down and filed some straight pins into mini versions and inserted them into the pin cushion.
