More Fall Witches and Bag Dolls
I sure have been giving my 30+ year old sewing machine just about all it can handle. In fact, I think I may have to buy another machine if I keep up sewing at my present pace. I made two more bag dolls, two more Amelia witches and a new witch pattern.
This is a new pattern (new to me) from Moonchild's Primitives and is called "Americana Flying Witch". I had a good time making her, although there is a lot of painting and stenciling involved. The flag is a project in itself. I was pleased with how she turned out.
This is one of two more Amelia witches I made. The pattern didn't call for hair but I added raw wool hair on both of them for a fun change. These are made from Mandy's pattern at Bittersweet Folk Art. I just love her patterns!
This is a little change on an old design. She is a Mammy from a Wash House. I made a white one and a black one.
I tried some new hair on this lady. I gave her some auburn curls that hang in her eyes.
This is the pocket and bag of washing soda from my Wash House Mammys.
This is the black Wash House Mammy. I just love her! The fabric in her dress is a vintage 70's print that I got on ebay.
Both Wash House Mammys have little clothespins at the top of their aprons.
Well, enough time wasted. It's back to the sewing machine! Happy Fall! This has been a wonderful cool, crisp fall day. Love it!
