I recently finished this sweet doll made from a Gail Wilson pattern and am very pleased with how she turned out. Gail's patterns are extremely detailed and a joy to follow...I will definitely be making more!
This particular little girl is called "An Historical Folk Doll Series-Kit Two: 15" Doll with Woven Wool Fabric Hair" and "is representative of many dolls from the period 1800-1875." I challenged myself to sew her completely by hand (body included!) and really love the results. I am a hand stitcher by choice...always...but it does take way longer to sew this way so I won't be getting rid of my sewing machine any time soon! It's just nice to have options :)
Her little doggie friend is made by Chad Valley and is part of my collection of small antique dogs. He's definitely been well loved but how could I resist that face! Not only that, but when it comes to picking lavender, he is quite the helper!
Happy stitching, everyone :)
