Sarah, Plaine and Pryme
Wanted to post some pics of Sarah, my newest rag doll. She was inspired by the pioneers who opened the American West and stands 21 inches tall. Her features are pencilled and stitched and she is completely coffee stained and then sprayed with our wonderful homemade fragrance, Autumn Hearth. Sarah wears a 100% cotton indigo colored frock with white flower print,a blue prairie bonnet, neckerchief of brown cheesecloth and a homespun woolen apron. She is complete to her sewn and attached thumbs, feedsack drawers and 1930's vintage flannel petticoat and is entirely handstitiched with the exception of her body.
It is so fulfilling for me to begin work on a new doll and have her personality seemingly jump out at me. Sarah's soft smile and gentle demeanor are pleasing to me as a seamstress and a doll collector.
I hope you enjoy her as much as I do.
