These gals were made from muslin. I drew out the patterns and then sewed them together. Each one was stuffed and then all body parts attached. I pinch-stitched their noses using thread and then stained each of them and laid them outside to dry in the sun. Once dried, I used white embroidery floss followed by black that I had stained and added the eyes to each of them. I then used the red floss stained also and added their mouths. One I gave teeth using the white floss.
I then stained all the clothing and when dry, dressed each gal bloomers, dress and all. I added their hair by needle-felting wool colored hair onto their heads. When their hair was on to my liking, I then added a witches hat to the top.
I made some pumpkins out of osanburg, painted them orange, let them dry in the sun, added faces using black floss and a stick to the top for a stem. I then sewed the hands together of the witches using thread and added the pumpkins in their arms.
On the one witch I made a raven out of Halloween fabric and glued it to her arm. I then added a rusty star also to her hands to keep them together and wrapped the wire around her wrists.
made to order....
The Witches of Eastwick storyline is a very interesting tale. You see these gals came together in a very mysterious way.
Ajuoga, the black//orange haired witch is the leader of this crew. She is very bossy and she knows all about dark magic, the kind that makes you shudder when you think about it. She was abandoned as a young girl because she had powers no one could explain. She was taken in by an olde crone that taught her everything she knows. She has a heart of stone, is powerful, the most powerful of the three and she is not afraid to use her powers. She has never been seen without her pet raven Powaqa. Ajuoga's name is African meaning “witch doctor”
Circe, the red haired witch, is very moody, depending on the day she can be happy one minute and sad the next. She carries a magic pumpkin in her hands that she thinks tells her the future. Does it really? No one will ever know. She is Helga's younger sibling. Circe's name is Latin meaning “sorceress”
Zoraida, the green haired witch, is also a younger sibling of Ajuoga. She is the most enchanting of the three. She is very beautiful and uses her beauty to her advantage. She lures her victims in by her stunning beauty and then after they are under her spell, she can do what she pleases with them. If you ever see someone who looks like they are daydreaming, they may be under Zoraida's spell. Zoraida's name is Arabic and means “enchanting woman”
These three witches are sure to delight and enchant your guests this fall if you bring them into
your prim home. Be sure though to keep an EYE on them, possibly an evil eye because you don't know what will happen with these three sister around.
