Vintage babes
The story behind their creation:
These girls were inspired by a combination of events.I recently inherited a box of thousands of vintage family photos and fell in love with the pics particularly from the 40's. This was the era when my grandparents dated,fell in love and then married when he took leave from the Navy(World War II).That awe that I had for the amazing photos of my grandparents sat in my mind stewing for a few months.The glamour,the working women(Rosie the Riveter) and of course the flawless faces of the pin up girls were all floating in my head.Then one day my daughter drew a picture of a little girl that looked like a Kewpie doll and it all happened! Inspiration struck! I HAD to make a vintage inspired rag doll that had the glamour of the 40's with the cutie-pie-ness(is that a word?) of a Kewpie doll.
The Vintage Babes were then created and my little Muse(my daughter) got dibs on the first one which,ironically, she named "Rosie".

Vintage Babes are 16" tall with hand embroidered faces and "sweetheart" shaped lips made from felt.They each have a matching neckerchief/scarf that can tie around their neck or be wrapped around their heads in "Rosie the riveter" style.The neckerchief is the only removable piece on the doll.They are made from Cotton(or in some cases Cotton/Poly blend) and are stuffed with premium Polyfil. Their giant fabric flower(s) are sewn on very well as is every thing else.

I have made Cat-eye Sunglasses that can be purchased as an extra accessory.It has it's own listing in my shop:o) http://www.etsy.com/listing/91622703/cat-eye-sunglasses-for-vintage-babes
* Not suitable for children under 3
*All pieces are sewn on well but please keep in mind that any toy,no matter how well put together can be pulled apart.Parental supervision is recommended while playing,especially with the dolls neckerchief as that is the only unattached piece. :o)

Thank you for looking! ^_^
