 It's been awhile since I posted a new item but I'd not been feeling well the past 4 weeks, with a virus of some sort that just would not let go.  Just when I thought I was getting better, it would come back with a vengeance.  This weekend I finally felt a bit better so made a new Americana Prairie Doll.
She measures 25 inches long.  She is wearing an Americana themed dress.  The bodice is red and white stripes with tiny blue stars.  The skirt is red and white striped with red stars and blue waved stripes between each star.  The dress is heavily stained to give it an olde thyme look.  The dress no longer looks 'white'.  Her apron is made of stained muslin and I've hand stitched 1776 on the pocket, which is filled with some Sweet Annie.  The bonnet is also stained muslin.

 She is holding a sheep that measures 10 inches tall.  He is made from stained muslin, his muzzle and tail are painted black.  I've sewn a rusty bell onto his neck and he has sticks for legs.

This doll was adapted by a pattern by You Are Special.
The sheep is a pattern of my own design

Price: $35.00 + shipping
