Storyteller—The First Rhinoceros

Storyteller—The First Rhinoceros

Original pattern by me (doll); rhinoceros pattern by Margaret Hutchings, from a vintage soft toy book. Storyteller's hat is a piece of sequined trim, clothes are either painted muslin or thrift-store silk. Rhinoceros is sponge-painted ultrasuede. Base is a wooden piece from Michael's, painted and decoupaged with rhinoceros pictures (from a book Mom found in her dentist's waiting room). 2001.
