Rag time!

I received a package of beautiful prints and homespun fabrics last week, so between bursts of busy bearmaking behaviour, I've also indulged myself with a little play time and 'Dotty Daydreams' is the result. I love the Debbie Munn print I've chosen for her dress ... I'm not sure if it shows clearly in the photo, but this fabric is loaded with dear little buttons and super cute ladybugs! To keep Dotty in the prim tradition, I soaked her calico bloomers in coffee grouts and baked them in the oven - I'm certain my mother will be horrified by those unladylike stained drawers!


'Dotty Daydreams'

At 20" Dotty is quite a bit taller than the other raggy dolls I've made this year, but she's every bit as much fun! I think she looks as though she's got her head drifting happily through the clouds, don't you?!

Hi Paula, I think you've got the hand of these rag dolls! So adorable. Her expression is just charming. She had to have been a fun play day project. Very cute!

Hi Paula!
I have to confess I have never been attracted by raggy dolls, whoever made them. Now I must admit there is definately something special about Dotty... She has a very expressive face. She looks like a child who feels embarrassed because she did something wrong... i love your choice of colours to.
Well done!
hugs,
Sophie.

I love Dotty. She has a wonderful expression. I'm wanting to make some dolls, too. Is this your own pattern? You have such talent in all you do.
