She is 16 inches. Face and body are a soft knit.Face is painted with pens and acrylics. She was inspired by him, whom I found on sale after Valentine's Day.

She has a wire armature and is mounted on board. Articulated hands so that her fingers are crossed behind her (hoping he really is a prince). This is my own original design..

Ruby Buttons, Violet Pickles
and Bertha Hazel.(Spider)

I was introduced to the books by E.J Taylor, in the 1990's, by a wonderful doll maker,Salli Lampi.

The Thorn Witch by E.J.Taylor is the inspiration book for the dolls I entered in this challenge. Ruby and Violet were made in Oct.2006.

Bertha Hazel--- aka, Spider was made Feb. 2008 for this challenge.
In this book Ruby and Violet are captured by the Thorn Witch for taking her black berries. A trade,with the Thorn witch's daughter Bertha Hazel, for Violets beautiful halloween dress sets them free.
All three dolls are all cloth, my own patterns. These are very basic rag dolls, made to be played with. I hope the children at our local library will enjoy them.

Little Red Riding Hood

I loved the story of Little Red riding Hood as a kidlet so I chose her for the challenge. She is all ready to set out for Grandma's house and her picnic basket is equipped with all the right stuff: apples, cheese, eggs and pepper spray! You never know what may be lurking in those woods!

She is an original design, is 15' and made from camel doe suede. Her brown boots and hand made, she wears bloomers, blue dress, apron all of cotton, and of course the red hood! features painted with colored pencils and the hair is mohair.
