OK girls I need some help here, I have to think he got a real bargain. He paid $8.00 for this bowl. It says
Roseville, USA on the bottom. I know it is old, because of the old bubbled look on the inside of the bowl.
but maybe not?????????????
I looked on ebay but couldn's find any like it. but no matter what it is worth I love it, because he bought it
I am so excited, I made another penny rug and my very first, I mean very first pumpkin dolls ever!
I was wanting to buy some pumpkin dolls, but seems like something unexpected always comes
up to take my money, don't we all know that feeling.
So I just thought, now if I can make bonnets, why can't I make myself some dolls.
So I did, I really did make two pumpkin dolls. The trouble with the other dolls that I made,
by the time I was finished I didn't like them and just gave them away. But I think I might keep these. He He
Sweet Cyndy Crafty Stitchers gave me a penny rug like this and I used that pattern.
I can see where making penny rugs can be addicting.
that I did a little different.
My pumpkin girl, I used two patterns for her, sweetmeadows farm and Jackie Schmit, I drew boots instead of feet for the pattern and didn't make the fingers on her hand. I just modified it to my liking.
I am so excited, I never thought I would be able to make a round headed doll, but I did. See I have trouble reading patterns, I am more visual.
And even though I like the more grungy fabric, I had this candy corn fabric and thought it would look so cute
But I found out doll making is lots of work, the cutting , stuffing body parts, painting, sanding, and grunging,
but I did it all!!!
