Betty Boop

Classy Cartoon in Cloth

Betty Boop

This is my rendition of Betty Boop, a classy cartoon made into a doll.  She is made with fabric and intricately painted in acrylic paint.

You will notice that Betty still needs some shoes. That’s okay. We like each other because we both like to go around the house with bare feet once in a while. Betty will get new shoes later.

I think she is as adorable as could be, with or without the shoes!
The Doll Makers Muse version of a vintage Betty Boop pattern is available in the shop.

Thread bearer, clay musher, paint brusher, seam ripper. Turning whimsy into reality, one doll at a time.

    Hi Rivkah
    I saw your comment re not having seen other Betty Boop patterns made up. About four years ago I made the doll up in velour. Couldn't think how to do her hair, so did it with black felt and fine black wool. Not as striking as yours. Her dress is silk. You can see it on my blog, under dolls I've made. I didn't like it. It went to someone in the UK. I do like yours though! http://sfmclothdollswithattitude.blogspot.com/
