Little Bag of Dollies

Yesterday at the craft bazaar I sold my little bag of dollies to a nice lady who wanted them for two little girls who visit her every summer.  In my excitement I forgot to take pictures of them.   But I'll post the picture of the pattern so you all can see how they looked.  This is a fun pattern by Rosalie Quinlan and is available right now in the USA at Keepsake Quilting.

New Dolly is off to her new home in New York

This new dolly is off to a wonderful new home in New York State.  Her body is knit from wool yarn.
She has mohair yarn for hair and is stuffed with wool batting.  Her hands and face are from cotton knit.  I'm excited about her outfit which I made from a talented Australian designers line of fabric.  Rosalie Quinlan's - Grandmothers flower garden fabrics.  I have purchased the fat quarters of this so you will probably be seeing more of her beautiful fabrics.  I've already made her pattern (little bag of dollies) and you will see these as soon as I paint their shoes

Sock Monkey thinks that he would make a great crew member on the Deadliest Catch Boat - the Time Bandit.  

Next Sock Monkey poses with the 200 Lb. Halibut he caught.  What a proud fisherman!

This sign kind of has Sock Monkey worried.  He's wondering what the rules are about feeding Sock Monkeys?

After all his hard work catching a halibut, Sock Monkey decides to stop at the world famous Salty Dawg Saloon for a monkey drink.

After a couple of shots, Monkey is thinking he better try to make it back to the Seldovia Ferry Boat.

Ahh, nothing like home sweet home after an exhausting day in Homer doing monkey business.

New Dolls listed on Etsy Today

I've listed three new Waldorf dolls in my Etsy shop today.
The first pixie in pink, lavender and light blue is named Morning Glory.  The little girl in red is Sissy, and the curyl dark haired doll is named Precious.  They are all made from all natural materials, wool, cotton, mohair etc.   Sissy's body is knit with purple wool yarn making her a little plumper than her pixie sisters.  They are safe for Children 3 and older.

Amigurimi Eskimo Crochet Doll

I recently took a break from cloth doll making and made this cute Eskimo crochet doll.  He is a pattern from; .  A cute and easy pattern and reasonably priced.  I used Red Heart-Buttercup white yarn for the ruff around his hood, arms and legs.  Works perfect for the fur effect.  Here's his picture.
