Paloma - Tiny Icon


It has been quite a while since I have made one of my tiny icon dolls. Perhaps you remember Audrey, Marilyn and Lady Gaga. What made me think of Paloma Faith (apart from the fact I just think she is brilliant) was when I saw a photo of her in a wonderful cherry hat, which also reminded me of my Cherry Fairies.

So here is tiny Paloma wearing her Piers Atkinson cherry hat. What I love about Paloma's style is that her vintage look is so elegant, but she is also not afraid to wear some really whacky outfits, and completely change her look. 

Unlike the other tiny icons I couldn't pick one outfit that sums her up. I had decided to make a 1950s style dress, but then I found the photo of her below in a beautiful blue (knitted!!) dress. I had to try to make a little version of this dress.

So my little knitted Paloma is a bit of a mix up, but I hope I have captured the essence of her. 








Has Paloma made it in the States? If you don't know who she is check out Youtube.  You are in for a treat.

P.S. I had lots of visitors to my blog this week, mostly from South Africa. To my Tundra Baby Shoe post. I can't quite work out if I have been featured somewhere, so I would be very grateful if anyone could let me know.

  8. I haven't heard of her here in Australia, but my 14 year old son does (and my more up to date husband). That cherry hat is quite something!

    1. I've done what you suggested, but now keep thinking I should take it off. It seems a bit pushy. Oh the problems of being a shy blogger.
