Trying to find 'My Rag Doll'

I adore Rag Dolls and would love to own one but finding one I truly love is difficult....I will know it when I see it but don't think I've seen 'The One' yet.

The following is a selection I really like......




MY  Rag doll will, I think, have plaits with ribbons, a mop hat maybe a gingham type dress over bloomers with a cream pinafore, perhaps striped tights and lace up shoes and I would like her to be holding something and so shes not lonely I'd like her to have a brother like the photo above, with freckles and glasses.

MY  Rag doll is out there somewhere I just have to find her ....I am willing to compromise a little in her style but she definitely will not be in a lacey pink party dress lol.

If you see one that you think I may like please leave a link on here ....I will find her one day, of that I'm sure :)

I really like the dolls that LittleJenny Wren makes. I think if you google her it should come up. I think they are Waldorf type dolls?

I know what you mean, I would love to get one for my little sweetpea but I haven't seen the perfect one yet :-( Good luck in your hunt.

I'll keep a look out for you, there's something so charming about rag dolls. I never used to like dolls but I have a little lillipeg one from Lucy Bloom (a dolly peg doll) and I love her to bits. I think you do have to find just the perfect one for you.

Hmmm think the ideal option would be to simply make your ideal ragdoll - that way you can ensure that she is everything you would dream her to be!! Check out http://clothdollpatterns.com - they have a huge range of styles!

Enjoyed visiting your blog today. Your paintings and drawings are truly gorgeous - what a talented lady you are!!
Hugs Jo x

Thanks Jo, I decided to commision one from a lovely brilliantly talented blog friend as it would make my rag doll even more special to me, so I am going to draw one for her :)
Jo your work is truly amazing I thought you had just left a picture of an orchid on the UK site but then I read it was made of leather......jeeeeez brilliant and beautful xx
