Muslin Dolls that were Sewn - Handmade Fabric Dolls

 Photo Pages 1 - 2 - 3 - 4

 

This adorable "Hug A Nurse" handmade raggedy doll was sewn for a friend of mine.

 

I can't even begin to tell you how difficult this "My Buddy Army Doll" was to make.  I found this old pattern from the 1940's. This pattern was made during WWII to give to children who's fathers were fighting in the war. Back then, pattern companies assumed that everyone sewed, therefore making the directions very hard to follow.

 

This 1950's Handmade Muslin Doll won 1st place in one of our doll contests.

It is hard to see the great fairy that Catherine made in this picture.  But it was awesome... She chose colors of purples and greens, (like an outdoor fairy), and trimmed it in ivy....Great imagination and creativity Catherine!!!!

 

Early cloth doll bodies were homemade with scraps of fabric.  Nothing was thrown out or wasted back then.  Most were constructed with a front and a back including legs. The arms were attached separately. One piece body dolls were produced commercially in the early 1800's in many European countries.  By 1840 muslin bodies were being made that could sit. Click here for more history of the muslin doll.

 

I sewed this cute hunter snowman doll for my son. I hot-glued leaves and painted snow on the camouflage and blaze orange fleece to give it a realistic effect.
