Louisa loves helping her grandfather out in the yard. It is something she has been waiting all winter for. The anticipation..........of...........a.........ride in the barrow. Oh, what fun!! This time Kat is coming along for a ride.

I created Louisa by using a pattern by the wonderful folk artist Netty LaCroix.

Louisa is made out of osnaberg that was tea-stained and sanded. I used artist's pencils for her facial features. Her eyes are embroidered using black and white pearl cotton.

I just love the way her dress came out..... I used a pinky, salmon, plaid, homespun fabric that I tea-stained.
The neckline and sleeve cuffs are hand-embroidered with a feather stitch using white pearl cotton. I hand-stitched all of the outside seams on the dress.
Louisa wears leggings made out of muslin. These are sewn on.
I used black wool roving for her hair. This is sewn on and lightly needle-felted.

Three vintage buttons are sewn onto the front of her dress and she wears a Heart Pin made out of stained osnaberg. This is sewn on.

Louisa is 24 inches tall and does not stand on her own. She comes with her cat, Kat. Kat is made out of osnaberg that was stained and painted black. Kat's eyes are sewn on circles of osnaberg fabric. Kat is 7 inches long.

Handmade in New Hampshire.
Louisa is signed and dated by me, the artist.

All of my Folk Dolls are decorative and not meant to be played with by children.
Lots of ♥ and attention go into the making of my Folky Dolls.

Thanks So Much For Stopping By & Buying Handmade!!!!
