Queen Anne Clothespin Doll Ornament

As you can probably guess, I am still having fun making these little Queen Anne Style Clothespin Dolls.

I took a wonderful trip in my fabric stash and found this pretty pink colonial fabric. Now I just needed to make a special little dolly to wear a pretty dress from such a special fabric.

That is exactly what I did. I made another Clothespin Doll to join my Queen Anne Style family.

I named her, "Miss Penelope."

Isn't she just so darling!

She is available on my Etsy shop.

Old Fashioned Clothespin Dolls

I have to say, I have had lots of fun making my Clothespin Doll "Miss Liberty", that I couldn't stop at just one(it's kind of like eating potato chips). Once you start, it is hard to stop. Needless to say, "Miss Liberty" now has a colonial cousin named, "Miss Susannah" to keep her company.

This little Queen Anne Clothespin Doll's dress is made with a small remnant  reproduction Old Sturbridge Village Fabrics that I have in my fabric stash. I love this color. I think "Miss Susannah" does too. Her hair is made of flax fiber and her face is painted in acrylics.

"Miss Susannah" is up for adoption.

Patriotic Queen Anne Clothespin Doll

The fair month of may is just a few sunrises and gentle breezes away. Spring is meandering by, though there still is a nip of a chill in the air that continues to hold on tightly here in my neck of the woods.

Two summer holidays(Memorial Day and the Fourth of July)inspired me to create this darling doll with a bit of patriotism in mind. I have named her, "Miss Liberty."

She is a wooden Queen Anne Style Clothespin doll that I made. Her wooden hands/arms are gently shaped. Her nose is made of lightly sculpted clay. Her hair is made of flax. You can see it tucked neatly inside her lace bonnet. Her face is painted in acrylics and antiqued for an aged look. She wears a very patriotic attire as she is so proud of this very special holiday along with the Fourth of July.

Isn't she a dandy?

She is up for adoption.

Spun Cotton Victorian Rabbit Easter Ornament

     I  just love the color pink. One can't get too much pink, at least in my opinion. With March's promise of Spring just around the corner, I couldn't wait to putter in some pleasant, perfect, "pinkness." What a better way to showcase this color than by this adorable Spun Cotton Victorian Rabbit carrying a pretty pink parasol.  Looks like she might be attending an afternoon garden party perhaps?  She is up for adoption here:

Spun Cotton Easter Bunny Ornament

The end of February is here. We made it thru winter, though there is still mounds and mountains of snow here in New England. I am hopeful and thinking of Easter, flowers, birdsongs and warmer days. I can't resist the pretty pastels of Spring and was inspired to create this little bunny.

I had such fun fancying this little bunny. I love her frilly dress and petticoats-all things girly. She definitely looks ready for Easter morning.
She decided to hold a daffodil in her hand, heralding Spring's upcoming arrival in a few short weeks.

This little sweetie is waiting adoption and can be found here:

Spun Cotton Valentine Cat

The day for pink and red, chocolates and roses is less than a week away. There are so many ways to show someone you care or admire them. This little darling kitty would make a most delightful gift for the cat lover in your life or a  just a little something special for a friend. She is wearing such a pretty little dress as she is all in pretty reds and pinks. Check out her pink carnation that she is carrying.

This little darling is up for adoption in my Etsy shop.

Spun Cotton Birthday Girl Ornament

Winter has generously dished out scoops and scoops of snow. Cold winds make it very unfriendly to venture outdoors for very long. It is perfect time to "play" in my box of crafting goodies to see what treasures I can create.

Purple and white tickled my fancy. It made me think of spring and celebrating special occasions. I  love this sweet little scrap face for this spun cotton ornament.  This combination was just perfect for this Victorian style little spun cotton doll. Look at her sweater. It is made of soft cotton batting.

She is up for adoption and would make a wonderful addition to any feather tree d├ęcor. It appears that she is ready to give a special birthday gift to someone. I wonder to whom it will go to?
