Talk about CUTE! An original design by Lucy, this 13" tall raggedy is made of muslin. She sits 8" high.She has hand embroidered nose, mouth and eyes. Her hair is embroidery floss strands, individually sewn into her head, and each one is knotted so they won't pull out. Her leg stripes are hand painted.
She wears little panties made from vintage muslin flour sack (one of the soft ones like my Grandma used for a dish towel). Her dress is medium blue, navy blue, black, red, and mustard homespun plaid. The little apron is a hand crocheted doily. It's stitched into the waistline of the dress and accented with 2 7/8" dark blue buttons handstitched to the front.
The doll and her clothing have been stained with my coffee/vanilla mixture. She's signed "designed and made with love, Lucy Rox" and dated.
This is Charlette. She is made from muslin that has been stained, painted, sanded and rubbed with cinnamon to give her an old worn look. She is 16 inches tall, has a handstitched face, with yarn hair. She wears a white/gold colored dress with a handstitched heart and gold bloomers. Her necklace is made of rusted bells and there is a rusted heart pinned to the front of her dress. She was made with a pattern by Threadbare Primitives.
Isn't this so sweet? Wouldn't it look great in your laundry or mud room? It reminds me of simpler times. This is a Renee Plains pattern, made with civil war reproduction fabrics from one of my favorite quilt shops, Pieceful Gathering in Fox River Grove IL. It measures about 22" wide and 17" tall...it has rings on the back for easy hanging. It has been machine pieced and quilted, the finishing of the binding has been done by hand.
