I wanted something cuter than a regular plastic bag holderÂ so I added an African-American rag doll with angel wings to a bag I already had.Â The doll itself is hand stitched and hand painted. I painted her skin with burnt umber oil paints then allowed it to dry. She was heat treated then sealed. I then added facial features and hair from a doll purchased forever ago. I have to say I like the finished product. I think what I like about her is she has a slight primitive appeal.Â I really like primitive black dolls but for this project I only wanted soft prim.
My plastic bag holder is currently hanging by the door so I can remember to return the bags for recycling when I go back to the store.
