Soldier Doll

I have been wanting to make a primitive soldier. I found a pattern by "Bittersweet Susan".
The pattern has him as a setting soldier, but I decided to make him standing.
He is approx. 21" tall, his uniform is made from grey wool. He has buttons and rusty pins
down the front of his uniform and on his hat. The buttons have the appearance of buttons
from olden days. He has a beard made from raw sheep wool. He is heavily stained and has
a real belt around his waist. He is standing on an old piece of weatherboarding from our old farmhouse.
He is also holding a prim Americana flag.
I am asking $36.99 plus traveling fee if interested. Lecia123@verizon.net

  1. How cute and historical. The grey wool is so historically correct for a CSA soldier during the Civil War. Very good job you did on the creation :)

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
