Spring in the Ozarks has been so beautiful I have found
it hard to stay indoors and work on dolls! Hand
sewing is a slow process anyway so I will probably
only finish one doll this month.
I have been working on a little doll that
reminds me of the early black dolls in the
Hatch Collection. Here is a link to the website
if you are not familiar with these one of a kind
historic American cloth dolls.
For my doll I have chosen to make her body
of linen, stuffed with wool roving.
Her hair is wool and her eyes are
antique white glass shoe buttons.
So far she has simple linen undies.
I think she will get a red dress and
a cotton or linen work apron.
That is if I can stay indoors!!
