The Skellie Girls

A few splashes of color and there you have, 4 skellie girls! These skellie girls are made from back & white felt, with a button or two, two layed skirts, some flowers and a heart. Their arms and legs are attached to their bodies by large splitrings so that they dangle. Large grommets were used at the "joints" to attach the arms and legs. A flower with a small skull made from Paperclay adorn the waistbands. There is a loop on the back for hanging...and they are 18 1/2" tall.
