fictional heroines

The first in what I hope to be a series of fictional heroines! I have already begun work on Pippi Longstocking. I had so much fun making Mary (although I still need to make her carpet bag) They were going to both be for a show coming up in December…but I’ve changed my mind and want to save them instead until I can finish a whole group. Then maybe I will approach some galleries about a show? I don’t know but I feel excited about making them and really that is all that matters. :)
