Mummy Evolution

Here's a pic of our first-ever set of mummies...they're a work in progress, even here (and we did eventually sew button eyes on them). We learned a few lessons in the art of "doll mummization" from our first try....

...and the model evolved into the little guys you see below (on auction this week, actually). Seed bead eyes, raggedy muslin bandages, more cuteness that chillingly fearful.

Last, but not least, is the stage of "Mummy Dearest", like the one below (the one on Ebay right now is the new "mother-son" design). The mother and child dolls may be a pun, and one of the oldest corny jokes in history, but the design was an official departure from "Pocket Prim" mummies for ornie trees.

There's more evolution to come with future designs ... maybe mummies will emerge from the animal kingdom next....
