I came across this particular photo over on Wisecraft, a lovely blog and just had to share it. I've been thinking about doing some rag type dolls and this one as well as this one from a older doll book I have. The top doll is from Patchwork Simplified by Alice Timmins, circa the seventies. The little prairie girl below is from a Better Homes and Gardens book, Cherished Dolls to Make for Fun, copyright 1984. I also have drawn a face for a rag doll based on this cute little matches container I saw online quite a while ago. I'm thinking about doing a simple rag doll, just to get back into sewing dolls again. I love doing the more complex bodies and the needle sculpted faces, but just at the moment these simple beauties are calling to me.
