Newest Commission..Molly Weasley!





Well the commission is complete and ready to be shipped off to her new home. This, for those that don't know the character, is Mrs. Molly Weasley ...wife to Arthur Weasley and Mother to several Weasley Children including Ron, Ginny, Fred and George. She is from the Harry Potter Stories and just happens to be one of my favorite characters... she is sweet and dear, and a wonderful Mother and wife...but what I love is she can be every bit the strong and forceful Witch when someone she loves is in harms way...
This doll setting is Miniature (1:12th scale) ..Molly stands approx. 5 1/2 inches tall ...so that gives you an idea of what size the chair is. The wonderful chair Richard made...I adore all the colors and patterns he chose...I know in the movies The Weasley Home is all comfy and down home basic...and the 'chairs' are covered with slip covers etc...but this is what 'we' imagine a favorite Weasley Home chair might look like under the cover...lol! Richard made the chair with a wooden frame and then covered with fine batt and then the fabric and trim....I want a Big one like this!!lol
The 'magical' knitting in the chair seat is the little tiny knitting I was ripping my hair out over...UGH!! although I must admit, by the time I got to the end of it...I think I was getting the hang of it and starting to enjoy it!! Molly's shoes are sculpted and painted to look like leather... her over apron is the 'mini' fabric I was working on...all trimmed in 1/8th inch silk ribbon. Her sweater is hand dyed and pieced together vintage tatted doilies I have had in my collection for years... there are about 8 different ones in each sleeve...
She was so much fun to work on...
Thanks for taking a peek...
Hugs,
Jodi

Wow! She is fantastic! I think you have captured the spirit of Mrs. Weasley perfectly. I just love all the details right down to the smile on her face and the basket of knitting. The new owner is one lucky recipient. Fantastic!

When I first looked at her, I thought she was much taller than the 5" Very lifelike and I love the old doilies. The chair is amazing too.
Very wonderful combination.

To see it in person is to really appreciate all the exquisite work that went into it! I can see why you were cursing with the knitting part, those needles were so small. That chair though! I want one for my living room now! Of course, Molly has the sweetest face and I just love her shoes and hair. Quite an accomplishment. You guys are so very talented!
