Meet Trudy–Mo’s New Paper Doll

If you are a fan of Mo’s Digital Pencil, she is having a contest right now on Facebook.  She gave a link to everyone who wanted to participate to get this adorable freebie, plus the party dress that goes with her.  You can either make a paper doll, or just use Trudy on a card, but you must use the dress and Trudy on your projects.

Trudy With Gift

She is just so darn cute.  She is actually just in her underwear, but then the fun is in creating a lovely party dress or two, for your paper doll.  I attached the doll, but she can easily be removed, so that she can be played with.  I also added a little cardboard stand, that way she will stay propped up.  The card is a double pocket diagonal card.  I made two tags, to represent her closet, each tag holds two dresses.  I drew the little silver hangers for her clothes.  The actual paper doll is colored with Copics, but all the dresses are paper pieced.

Trudy Pulled Tags

This shows the tags partially pulled out.  I used some embroidery floss as a pole to hang the hangers on.  The sentiment is from Kraftin’ Kimmie.

Trudy Dress Tags

So, here is picture of all her lovely little party dresses.  What a spoiled little girl! 

This was so much fun to do, it reminded me of when I was little.  I use to cut out the models from the Sears catalogue, and then make my own clothes.  I can remember spending  hours playing with the paper dolls.

I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing Trudy and her dresses, and that it brings back lots of memories of being a child and playing with dolls.  Thanks for stopping by.
