I made this original softie from ideas in my head, for a swapbot swap on Coloriffic swap-o-rama. I named her Kelly Skellington and sent her to a new owner in Canada. I freehand painted the skeleton body with fabric paint on black fabric (actually it was a pant leg from old dress pants) and then cut around the body and head and sewed them together. I then stuffed the body and head and attached them, and added a beaded ribbon piece for a necklace. I made a red glitter heart for her ribcage (paint) and decorated her eyes with black glitter fabric paint. I lined the coffin-like box with a quilted bottom and satin biding edges. I also made her a tulle skirt that removes and a spidery blanket for her journey to her final resting place.

To myself for design, creation, etc.
