I have been thinking about this for quite sometime....and yesterday when I was looking for something in the craft room and stumbled upon 2 forgotten dollies...I knew it was time to do this. So...these 2 dollies had been lost in the mass of forgotten fabric for who knows how long. I think these were 2 of the first dolls I made about 2 years ago from a pattern by Patties Ratties....yep...you read that correctly...2 years they had been buried beneath fabric. They were a part of my grubby/blotchy staining phase...LOL.
I remember why I had put them in there, never to be seen again. The yarn that I had originally used for their hair frayed and puffed up on me...It looked HORRID!! So....off to the craft table they went...both of them tucked beneath my arm. And I began to rip their hair off...LOL... I gave them both an EXTREME MAKEOVER. They both recieved NEW HAIRDO'S and even some new blush.
I have listed one, that I gave some raggedy red wool hair,(not a full head of hair) on Ebay starting bid $9.99. This one I have given some medium brown wool hair (not a full head of hair...just along the seam line) and decided to use her as a giveaway doll. She wears a mock 2 piece dress. The bodice is a red and white check. The dress skirt is an out of print Debbie Mumm featuring old world Santa's. She wears blotchy stained bloomers beneath that are gathered at the leg openings. She has painted leg stripes. Her facial features, including her nose, are hand stitched...and lets not forget those button eyes. She has medium brown wool hair with a matching fabric bow accented with a button just off center in her hairline.
So...lets get this started! All you need to do is comment on this 16" Button Eyed Annie to be entered. If you post a link on your blog, I will enter you a 2nd time. The giveaway deadline will be February 19th...one month from today. I will draw a winner on February 20th and post the winner here on my blog on February 21st.
