Rag doll cloth art doll. I have created a pattern for a traditional style rag doll based on memories of my childhood rag dolls made by my talented mum whom I have named these dolls after. I also wanted these dolls to reference the history of rag dolls, traditionally made by mothers and even children from scraps left over from dressmaking, so many of my fabrics are vintage or inherited from my mums dressmaking business. The construction of these dolls celebrates these histories whilst being thoroughly modern in their attitude

This Molly Dolly is called Rosie Posy. This lovely doll is definitely an exercise in nostalgia and happy memories, she is exactly the kind of doll I would have loved as a child.

After doll making my mum moved onto clothes and knit wear, when she and her two partners retired a few years ago I inherited some wonderful scrap bags dating from the 1970s through to the 1990s, I also have my own collection of fabric from the 1930s to 1980s.

I love the way Rosie Posy has come together, inspired by my own little girl (Rosie Posy) there is a little mischief to this doll, she has her beautiful pale pink linen night gown on but Rosie is not ready for bed, she has found her carnival mask and fashioned her vintage quilt into a cape! the cape is made from a genuine piece of vintage even antique quilt that I have inherited, it is very old and has age spots, a mix of cottons, silks and other cloths.

Rosie Posy's hair is strawberry pink linen sewn in place with contrasting apple green thread, her face is hand embroidered, I use coloured threads and raw edges as design details, for example the duck egg blue / fluorescent orange to sew the seams. She is polyester filled and approx. 20" or 51 cm tall.

Rosie posey would make a wonderful heirloom gift or display doll for your home, she is happy to be played with but is not recommend for young children due to small parts and delicate details.
