Ursela the Vampiress

Ursela and books

Ursela didn't want to be a vampire, she didn't want to be or do anything but read her beloved books. But then she learned the most marvelous magical thing...well the most magical things if you are an immortal wallflower...Vampires dont need to sleep...EVER. Ursela could spend her immortal afterlife roaming bookshops and late night cafes, reading book after book and nibbling on the shoppers and coffee drinkers. She never missed the sun for she never saw it to begin with.

Ursela was sewn for my frien Marina's birthday on Tuesday. Harrison helped me to pick out the fabrics and vintage buttons to use, and he helped stuff Ursela with toy filling. I think she is one of my favourite dolls and I may have to make another similar in style as I love how her mouth turned out with a wide grin and little fangs. So if you love her too, drop me a comment and I will see what I can do to make another little vampire doll.

I absolutely love her!!
Wish I had the skill and patience to create such beautiful things but, alas, I am too impatient and face the limit of my crafting abilities on a regular basis!!

A vamp after my own heart.. I've given way to much thought over the years about being a vampire. An eternity to read everything, learn so many languages - and obviously become a martial arts superstar!!!
She is really cute - love your dolls. I think you should make some mini ones for bag charms!!

She's so cute! Reading all the time and never requiring sleep make turning into a vampire seem appealing. I always wish I could have more time in my day! Plus maybe I would be able to pursue all of my interest and finally master a few.
