Heirloom dolls

Along with other kinds of needlework I love doll making.  I use mostly vintage and antique fabric/linens for my dolls along with wool, tea dyed vintage muslin and vintage trims.  It took a bit of time creating patterns until I came to one I really loved.  All of my dolls like the rest of my needlework are made by me in my studio.  Though I haven’t used any buttons my dolls may not be suitable for children under 3 years old. Also, I never destroy good pieces of antique/vintage fabric or linens!  Only ones that can’t be used as intended and have damage or have been cut apart (by someone else!)

  1. What a great idea for vintage fabrics! The dolls are beautiful. I’ve made just a few dolls and they are fun to make and fun to give. I recently bought some dolls at a thrift store that I’m hoping to make new clothes for them and clean them up a bit so they’ll be a nice gift for some girls I knew who would love them!

  2. They are beautiful ! The crocheted hair adds a nice touch.
