Breast Cancer Dolls Update

They been cut, sewn, turned and then soaked in coffee stain. I opted for a lighter stain because I still want to see a faint glimpse of pink.  They will dry lighter.

 

The color looks good. On to stuffing. It’s my least favorite part of doll making. I think because the time it takes and the fact that I get excited about pulling it all together.

Raggedies

They sure have come along way.

There are so many different styles and looks of a Raggedy.  Check out this page, History of Raggedy and see how the raggedy came about and evolved over the years.  Great history and amazing inspiration there.

More inspiration for me is a doll artist, Shelly Koch Mama’s Primitives.  She makes amazing raggedy dolls; the kind I love.   Check out her prim raggedy dolls.
