"Hand Me Down Dolls"
Hand Me Down Dolls are made from calico, previously used , when i can find it ,otherwise i use new. i tea stain the fabric & wash it before cutting out. i also draft my own patterns. the dolls are hand & machine stitched.sometimes i use hand printed or painted fabric, but always try to use recycled, which comes from op shops, friends & family.edens dress is made from an old cotton pillowcase ,very soft & worn, some of the buttons are from an old tin my grandmother gave me a long long time ago. her hair is strips of torn fabric. my hope is that the owners of these dolls will pass them on when they have outgrown them. each doll is a , one of a kind maybe similar , but each one is different.
