Here's the first thing I've made from the vintage French spools - Mademoiselle Bobine (Bob-een). Quite pleased with how she turned out. She stands around 18cm tall and has been painted in acrylics. Her arms are moveable and held on with vintage buttons. She sports a jaunty and chiq felt neckerchief. Wasn't sure about the base - I did toy with the idea of decoupaging words like 'metro' and 'Paris' on but decided to leave it plain. Might list her in my Folksy shop - will keep you updated.
