My Latest Doll Creations

I have been busy at the sewing machine the past few days.  This is what came out of my efforts  The first doll is a simple "Annie" doll with yarn hair.

I loved making her hair. 

I painted on her "socks"

 Now, this one took some time!  This is "Mammy Baking a Pear Pie".  She is a little over 36 inches tall.

This is a closeup of her face.  She has a little bit of raw wool hair peeking out from under her head wrap.  She wears a Ornasburg apron with rusty pins on the neck straps.  I painted her eyes and needle scuplted her nose and lips.

This is a close-up of her big ol' feet.  They are so funny!

This is her basket of pears and I have tied a "Mammy's Pear Pie" recipe card on the handle of the basket.  It's a real pie recipe.  She took several  hours but I enjoyed every minute of it!


  1. your dolls are so wonderful. You do a great job on them.

  2. I love mammy's feet, that is a hoot. Your dolls are fantastic.

  3. Cute!
    I have that mammy pattern every time I look at it ~ I say it looks like a lot of work!
