About

Creator of handmade rag cloth dolls and Animals

I am a grandmother, wife and mother but most of all I am a craft artist. My first try at sewing was simple baby quilts, painting in oils, drawing in pencil and cartooning. I began selling my baby quilts in crafts shows when I lived in Montana. I was also born in Malta Montana. My cartooning took off first by being published in some local papers in Montana which were based on things happening locally. It was in 86 that I moved to Oregon and here is where I have remained living on the Oregon coast. In 98 I was asked to do cartoons for a book called Be Bold Get Old. In the meantime I fell in love with sewing animals and rag cloth dolls and showing them in the markets around Washington and Oregon. Most of the dolls are made with muslin and other cotton fabrics, I have also created my own way of making them primitive. I have also learned to make some of my very own patterns for my dolls and I will do special requests on some of my dolls. The animals are my favorite also, I love the use of many different fabrics for making the animals and I love bright colors for them. I do have many vintage patterns and I love remaking dolls and animals from days gone by and will have details in the descriptions of the type of pattern I have used. I love living on the mouth of Columbia River which is rich in history.

Thank you! for stopping in to my shop, which is about Rag Cloth dolls that I love making. Most of my dolls are designed with Onsburg, muslin, or other cotton fabrics that I will mention in detailed information on the site of each doll. My dolls are a bit about my own designs, taken from very vintage patterns that have been handed down to me and other places, there will always be information where the design of the doll. My dolls facial features are sometimes painted with acrylics, my favorite medium; I will use buttons and beads; hand embroidery. I love to also recycle fabric and you will see this is the dolls, quits and animals I also will do special orders or requests if you see a doll you like and would like another.
