and Primitive Cloth Dolls
Estelle Ansley Worrell Doll
The Suffragettewas made from a
Butterick pattern designed in the late 1800's for a Challenge on the
Cloth Dollmaker's Forum
To me the face looks like it is staring out of the past.
The body is tea-dyed. The arms are attached with 'puppet' joints.
The face and shoulders have been painted with acrylic paint and 'distressed
to make them look old.
Miss Lucy must be about 100.
I believe she is wearing her original dress
Beside her is Gertrude, age unknown
