Primitive Doll and her Raggedies

This grungy primitive doll measures 25 inches tall from the top of her head to the tips of her toes. I made her from osnaburg fabric. Her eyes, mouth, shoes and socks are painted with acrylics. I stained her with walnut ink and coffee. I used prisma pencils on her cheeks. I needle felted wool to her head and tied her ponytails with rusty bells. Her dress and pantaloons are made from cotton prints.

I just love this doll! She has sheeps wool hair. Machine sculpted face, then a final needle sculpt of the eyes, mouth, nose and cheeks to bring out more definition. Hand painted, then lightly sanded for an aged prim look. Dress, loons, socks and collar were dipped in a strong coffee solution.

Raggedy Maggie Rose Primitive Doll

Raggedies sure tug at my heart, and this one does especially!! Raggedy Maggie Rose has a great stitched face, with old mis-matched button eyes stitched on. Her hair is raggedy red perle cotton, securely stitched to her head. She has nice rosey cheeks, too!! This collectible raggedy is wearing a most precious cotton dress in a patchwork print. Her little pantaloons are stained muslin. Raggedy has hand painted raggedy stockings, and hand painted black shoes, accented with little blue buttons.

Perfectly Prim Little Purses

Spring is here, more time to spend outdoors....flea markets, farmers markets, long walks, trips to the zoo. This little purse is the perfect accessory! It's 4 inches wide by 5 1/2 inches tall when closed. The satin cording strap is long so you can wear it across your body, making it extra secure. The star fabric is from Andover, the green primitive flowers is from Moda. There are two sections inside, perfect for holding a phone, camera or ipod along with essentials like drivers license, credit cards and cash.
