folk man doll


Remember these doll clothes? I finally got around to sewing up some dolls to wear them, but it took a few tries. I was afraid for a bit I would stuck in a never-ending cycle of sewing dolls and clothes and clothes and dolls that would never quite fit each other. With a bit of alteration on the overalls, I managed to make them fit the second doll I made, with a smaller plaid shirt. But because it was a prototype (and I'm lazy) I left the blue thread on the machine when I made the doll, and you can see it. Darn Blast Silly Me.

I've wanted to make a folk man doll for a while. I think the next one will be a little smaller, with long sleeves and a brown beard (and white thread). Maybe a beanie.

What do you think a hipster-folk man doll would have?

you know, I didn't notice the blue thread until you said so. I love your folksy man, he looks kind and gentle. He looks like he would be able to play a piano accordion or the harmonica, maybe both, but not at the same time. I think a little knitted beanie would keep his head warm in winter. I think he would laugh alot, and I reckon he loves looking up at the sky at night. Thanks for sharing your folksy man.

Hehehehe, he is a cutie. I see a little jug of moonshine and an axe. Not sure you wanted your folksy man to be a bootleggert that chopped down trees though, oops. I am sure you will come up with something fantastic though. I love all your dolls, they are always gorgeous.

What about a hunter's cap or is that to Holden Caulfield?
He is cute. I like his ginger-ness.
