"Abundance" has what is known as a stump body in that she has no legs but has a shaped base that allows her to stand on her own. A stump body works very well for dolls where the costume is the main focus.
I used a piece of heavy cotton for her body. It was a very large remnant that I bought at the Toronto CreativFestival two years ago for $2. It's actually heavy weight drapery fabric. At the time I thought it would make a great background for an appliqued picture of some sort. I have strange ideas sometimes.
I was very lucky this week too as I commented on a blog I follow for a giveaway and guess what I won.......FABRIC!!!! Not just any fabric but crazy quilting type fabric from Diane's Decorating Diary.
I had a choice of twenty crazy quilting packages to choose from and it was very difficult but I chose this one......
