Booker - a Primitive Black Folk Art Boy Doll
Booker is quite the little guy. I had made him a proper pair of blue slacks, but I could tell he didn't want to wear them. So I ended up making him a pair of overalls. The overalls are made out of a cotton material, not as heavy as ticking but it has the same design. I have stained them with coffee and patched the knee. His shirt is checked homespun. He also is wearing a pair of muslin shorts under his overalls.
Booker's hair is made of mohair roving and lightly glued and needle felted into place. I like the short hair on him.
I still have to make him something to hold, I was thinking a frog, but them other thoughts keep coming to mind. Maybe he wants a chicken, or a puppy. He may even get a baby bunny. I still am not sure what it will be.
Chloe - A Primitive Folk Art Black Girl Doll
Chloe, my little girl doll is very sweet. She has a red and white cotton dress and muslin bloomers that are trimmed with red and white material that matches the dress.
I had made her hair ribbons to tie her puppy tails with but they didn't look right, so I will be making her some others. Her hair is also made of mohair roving.
She will be holding a little doll, which I still have to make.
More Belindy's In The Making
The box of dolls that I am working on are all Belindy dolls. I have had several people ask if I had anymore of them so ................I'm working on them!
The Belindy doll was inspired by Raggedy Ann's best friend - Belindy. These dolls are my version of that Belindy. If you want to see what they look like finished you will find an album in My Photo Gallery of Belindy. If course they will not be exactly the same but they will be similar to the one in the gallery.
Thanks for stopping by the Doll Shoppe, Please come back again!
