Country Dolls

I like to make cloth country dolls. Here is my latest one that I made for my niece. I've never kept any for myself. I prefer the more primitive style. I crocheted the edging on the dress.


  1. I love her,love the crochet edging,she`s cute!phylliso

  2. Wow Aleta---I had no idea you were so talented. I LOVE them all... Wish I could do something like that. My Mom 'tried' to teach me to sew--to no avail!!! Oh Well..

  3. I have to give you, Phyllis, the credit for encouraging me to start making dolls, and now I'm hooked!! I love to try various crafts. I knit, crochet, cross stitch, needlepoint, embroider, sew, punch needle, felt, quilt a little bit. . . did I miss anything? I think that's it. I like to learn new things and experiment with new techniques. It does keep me busy, since I'm retired.
    Betsy, if you want to try to do something crafty, just get a book and give it a whirl. That's how I learned most of what I do. There are all kinds of resources out there, especially with the internet!
