    My doll made from quilting fabrics

    This my doll. I made her body from cotton muslin. Her face is painted with oil paint and then varnished. Her pantaloons and underslip are made from cotton. I made her calico dress and bonnet are made from 100% cotton. Her socks are cotton and her shoes are leather, made from leather opera gloves. I had no patterns, but had a 50 year old doll made from a pattern from the 1890's which I modeled her after.

    These dolls always fascinate me. Over the years I've collected many patterns but never made one. Congrats on your beautiful doll.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Dolls are so wonderful and special. So what is her name and she is so sweet and well behaved sitting there so prim and proper with her bonnet on. She is a lovely young lady and you did a wonderful job bringing her to life.

    She is beautiful.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.
