Rags To Heirloom Doll -one of a kind.

Rag to Heirloom doll

This doll body is handmade from cotton, her face has been hand embroidered and her hair is made from fleece cut into strips. She is one of a kind and made for my niece who just turned 21. I wanted it to be a keepsake and an heirloom in the making so I embroidered the pantaloons with her name, her birthday and then also added her mums, grandmothers and great grand mothers names. The dress is made from an old embroidered linen piece that my mum had given me before she died. The little pearl button is another vintage piece that I also got from my mum. This picture was edited by my brother and added to a photo that he had in his recent archive.
