Old Fashion Rag Doll

Just an Old Fashion Rag Doll. This is one of my doll that I made for my Mother In-law.

She is a painted rag doll. I use the muslin body as my canvas for painting. I apply several coats of gesso and then paint in layers till I get the look I'm after.

The clothes are all hand made even the adorable little donkey or is it a horse that she is hold as her favorite toy.

I love making these rag dolls imagine in days of old children where allow to play with them. Today well due to it being painted I would say no this is not a toy but it is a collector doll.
