APARTMENT WITCH PERMELIA - Kitchen Witch

in miniature!
Have you ever seen one
of these kitchen witch's.
They symbolize good luck!
Some of them
are so ugly that they are down right cute.

A witch named Permelia is moving in on
the bottom floor. She is
guardian to her 2 motherless nieces.
Their names are Narcissa & Sophronia.
Narcissa is sometimes called 'Cissa'. (Pronounce
Cissa like sis in sister).
Sophronia is sometimes called 'Frony'.
This little kitchen witch is going to hang down
from their ceiling.
I didn't have any pattern to go by so I
had to make up my own. Truthfully
I didn't think that she was even going to turn
out! I wanted the little witch to be 1" X 1".
But I was not able to make it that little.
She measures 2" X 2".

The broom measures (from the tip
of the handle to the end
of the purple floss) 3 inches. I used a
small piece of a stick that my hubby
retrieved from the backyard for the
broom. I wanted it as natural as it could
be. Initially, I wanted
her to look ugly but apparently I am not
good at ugly!
She needs to be uglier!

Perhaps later I will dry making
another witch and painting her green.
If I do, then I will make a
tutorial.

Her eyes and mouth are drawn on
with a blue ink pen.


Here's another angle. I think
the glue on her only adds character. It
makes her look like she has some cobwebs.


I wanted a crystal or something
to hang down from the tip of her hat.
However for now I omitted it because
I couldn't find in my small stash
anything that was small enough.
Her legs are
a pink stretchy fabric.
For her shoes, I just used a permanent magic marker.

Here is the underside of her.
She is glued onto the broom. I
hope that you like my mini
kitchen witch!
Soon I will show you the
empty apartment.
