About

Polly-Wog Patterns ... the Scoop!

My daughter, Polly, was dubbed "Pollywog" from the time she was a toddler. I had started learning to wield a sewing machine and fashion Halloween costumes with a young household of three children, 2 boys and a girl. I had been wrestling with dollmaking from the time I was 7 years old and thoroughly loved it. Raggedy Ann was my hero. Yes, I delighted in creating dolls for my daughter and my sons ... one of my sons was so enamored with Super Mario that I made him a 36" Super Mario doll which he still has to this day (he is 27).

So, Polly-Wog Patterns was born when I retired to the Roanoke Valley and nestled with my new husband in the golden years of retirement and the adventure of my lifetime in the embrace of the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Appalachains. I have always loved dolls and have sold many before this adventure but now I wanted to share the art of dollmaking and began my business by creating patterns in a waning economy so that others could enjoy learning what I had learned by using my patterns and begin creating their own characters. My guess was wrong and I found that people are collectors and the finished doll is what will answer the song in their hearts.

So, I continued to carry the patterns but started creating a kingdom of soft dolls and soft-sculptured characters with stories of their own to tell. Most of my dolls now are one-of-a-kind and have delighted many of the young-at-heart fans out there. I also specialize in Spirit and Healing dolls which are special characters to help those who are in need of comfort during especially troubling times in their lives.

The "studio" came about as I took over an extra bedroom and fitted it out with orange crate shelves and storage which lines two of the three walls. This is my sacred place of creation where my dolls begin from paper sketches, to pattern templates, to prototypes, to finally the manifestation of the little creature that was yearning to be born.

I love soft-sculpture and often post blogs on many tips about dollmaking that I have learned to help the fledgling dollmaker along the way. I feel that sharing is a responsibility of any artist and only makes the world of dollmaking and collecting a wonderful loving place.

Hope you enjoy visiting Polly-Wog's and visit often. I love email and will delight in keeping in touch!

Relax and enjoy your visit and please always feel welcome. So, come to stay a while and then come back! We love having your company!
