MAIDA Dolls Group Storybook Challenge Featured In Prims Magazine 2012 Autumn Issue

"Making Antique Inspired Dolls & Accessories"
Storybook Challenge Featured In
PRIMS 2012 Autumn Issue
My great-great-great uncle, Barnett Farthing
was a boyhood friend of Samuel Clemens.
They attended school together in Hannibal, Missouri
and shared in the many adventures made so famous
in the book Tom Sawyer.  So, when Dixie
Redmond of MAIDA challenged us to make a doll
from a story we loved, I thought it only fitting I choose
Becky Thatcher.
Barnett Coffee Moran Farthing

Becky was really a "challenge" for me.
She is described in the book as having
blue eyes and yellow hair.
It was great fun to be a part of this challenge!

Be sure to pick up a copy!


  1. Betsy is a her striped socks too! You are so creative.

    :) Carolyn

  2. Becky is just proud of her and her friends! Congratulations, Sherri!

  3. It's great to get outside our comfort zone once in a while, isn't it? I think your Becky is a wonder. (And I kinda wish we could get by with wearing bonnets like that...I'd ask you to make me one! :~)


Leave me a message. I would love to hear from you.
