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.

This is a small Molly Dolly called Fay she is a woodland fairy. 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 and the perfect doll to evoke happy childhood memories in grown up girls.

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 ranging from the 1930s to the present day.

Fay is a rare blue haired woodland fairy. She wears a lovely chunky knit top with linen wings attached and a red polka dot print skirt. To keep out the autumn chills she has a wonderful fully lined wool coat with red buttons, her little felt slippers have red pon poms and she has vintage Japanese kimono cotton trousers. All clothes and accessories are removable except her very special toadstool hat which is a permanent and magical part of this little doll.

Fay is made from a golden coloured linen with short blue wool felt hair, her face is hand embroidered, I use coloured threads and raw edges as design details, for example the duck egg blue or fluorescent orange to sew the seams. She is polyester filled and approx. 14" or 36 cm tall.

Fay 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.
