Folk Doll with a Night Cap and Teddy Bear

While visiting my in-law’s over Christmas I had the opportunity to take pictures of some of the handmade items I’ve given my Mother-in-law over the years.

This folk doll carries a small teddy bear. I couldn’t find small enough buttons for the eyes so I made these from polymer clay. The bear is sewn to the doll’s hand.

Her body is made of tea dyed muslin, her dress from scraps from an old soft flannel shirt. The hat is denim with a knotted cotton string tassel. I honestly don’t remember what kind natural fiber I used for the braided hair. It is quite stiff and a little waxy feeling.

Her face is simply french knot eyes and a rectangle nose.

She now spends her days observing the guest room from her spot on a shelf.

Here’s where I’m linking up.
