Meet Gavril

I just finished another Santa! Woohoo! Gavril, whose name is Slavic for “believer in God,” is wearing a coat made from a tea-stained vintage chenille bedspread in pale seafoam trimmed with three mismatched mother of pearl buttons. His pajama pants are made from a beautiful piece of vintage drapery fabric, one of several gorgeous remnants given to me by my friend, jewelry designer Linda Bertino of Charming Trinkets. Gavril is holding a bag made from a vintage doily tied with an old piece of cotton twill seam tape (right out of my mom’s old sewing box).

Fabulous as always. You make me ashamed of myself, I mean to make some more 'Dorises' next year!

Thanks, Kay Susan - but you have nothing to be ashamed of at all - your "Dorises" are far more complex than my Santas.
