My Wild Irish Eyes Doll

I wanted to make a primitive folk art doll for St. Patrick's Day. I found old pj's, beads and used the thick chunky muslin. I painted her eyes green and taught myself how to do appliqued eyelids. The fun cone party hat has some hand made Mylar 4-leaf clovers on it. I hand made those and found out you really need to shrink the Mylar outside .. since it stinks! She had bloomers and remodeled crocheted sweater for her size. This doll also was sold on Ebay and lives back east some where?? ! Her eyes scared my friend too.
