The Cute 20 inch Tina Belle a blessing cloth doll

This sweet doll was so wonderful to do up. I have a vintage pattern from 1989 it's a Butterick . The cloth doll is called the Blessing Doll. I have made her up with craft velour and filled her with fiber fill. The face details are my own design, I did not use the pattern. I did her facial features by hand and using cotton floss. The dress is so cute a cotton fabric with Winnie the Pooh on it, and the shoes are black felt. The hair is a wine cotton yarn and I have sewn it into the head of the doll using a quilting thread. Tina Belle is so special, you can pose her to sit, or in a position as if she is asking for a blessing. I did a small bit of soft sculpting on the hands. You can find her in my store and she is $47.00

Lots to Share This Week

Lots and lots to share this morning....
Yesterday was Mother's Day and I had a very nice one I hope everyone else did too. Being that I am a mom of 2 wonderful teens I wanted to share how proud I am of my 14 year old son. A few weeks back he was in a parade! Hooray! He loves band and plays the flute and stuck with the flute, after lots of teasing from male friends. Now he is going to do the horn and he can play the Saxophone. I am proud that he loves band tries
so hard. The band teacher is amazing! and a very talented man. It's sad that I have a decline in the arts, we really need to support, music, art, band, our kids are amazing and so are the teachers. They won first place in their category.

I just finished another 14 inch Raggedy doll using that 1970's McCall's pattern again. I used the drill fabric and I embroidered her face by hand. I used the scrapes of Americana fabric to make the legs
and the apron. She is filled with fiber fill and the hair is that rich yarn that has been sewn in using quilting thread. This little Rag cloth doll will also sell for $28.00 and I will be adding her to the store shortly.

I have also been working on some more crochet items I just finished a little bag to store your T.V. remote and DVD remote in. I just used a simple crochet stitch and sewed the sides up and added a cute latch and button.
