Early Prairie Doll Pattern Is Ready!





First, let me say, the sun is out today...off and on but I'll take it.

Now, on to the dolls. I created these dolls because I wanted a prairie doll that looked like it was well worn and well loved. Not well worn and SKEERY. LOL! These dolls are worn and soft. The sitting doll has been partially stuffed with rags for a nice weight and feel. They are stained of course but not over done. You can make a standing 16" doll or a sitting 15" doll. They have tiny fingers but don't be scared! I didn't stuff these perfect, I wanted them to look "used". You could make these dolls for a childs room. The little bonnets are cute hanging up too. I've given these dolls a full round head.

I think I will also make the dress to hang on a prim hanger, how cute would that be? You could paint little boots on the feet but I opted not to.

The sitting doll has the cutest pinafore!


I gave the sitting sister a lightly penciled face and the standing sister no face.  I also needle felted hair to the sitting sister but none for the standing sister.

  These are all options.
Now, the pattern is now ready.  If you would like to order simply email me.  It is $12.00 + shipping.

Hope your day is a great one!
Maureen - in sunny PA!!!!!


Here's the little dress hanging on a twig and rusty wire hanger with the little doll bonnet.

These Prairie Sisters are great! I sold little prairie dolls at a show a while back and a lady told me the fact they didn't have a face would confuse the child she was giving it to. My first thought: Not made for children! She told me she would buy it if I drew eyes on it. I did against my better judgement and she said it made it worse. I regret that one. Will keep an eye out for your pattern ~*~Lisa
