Sarah~ tuff as homemade soap

Sarah Is SOLD Thank You!!!!

Everyone would say under their breathe, "oh, that poor little thing", in reference to Sarah before she moved out West on the wagon train, "Dont worry about her, she's tuff as homemade soap, that one is"! Sarah didnt feel as strong as the Lye that her 'mam put in soap, but she always accepted it, and took it as a challenge to always stay strong and to never waiver.
Hello and Welcome to my first doll sale on my blog, Please meet Sarah, she is a child doll done in Izannah Walker Style, and she is 13 inches tall. She is a prairie girl at heart! She comes with her very own 7 inch tall prairie doll that her mom pieced together out of discarded cloth. Sarah treasures this doll, and keeps her close always. I have used antique to vintage fabric when ever possible.
Sarah is a clay over cloth, she has a 'second skin' on her torso, and an applied thumb, as Izannah Walker did with her cloth folk art dolls. This dollie has a stockinette and her boots are paint in the same fashion as well. She comes with her bloomers (which are crotchless as was the pantaloons of the era), her bonnet to keep the sun off of the back of her neck while she walk, at times, on the trail. I did slightly dye her muslin body as well. Sarah is a solid long lasting quality folk art heirloom doll, and has been varnished, sealed and signed by me Jackie Plain-n-Simple. All of Sarah's clothing are removable, and if you'd like to see more pictures, please do email me. If you are interested in purchasing Sarah, please. I will gift wrap her in her own special box just in time for Christmas.

Oh My Gosh Jackie!
Your dolls are just beautiful. I love the way you added a story to them. I can see why Sarah found a home and was adopted so quickly. What a beautiful face that tells a story just looking at her. I loved her clothes that you made, and her little companion. How precious is she. Thanks so much for sharing your talents with me tonight. I have signed up to follow your blog. I can't wait to see what you make next.

Please stop over and say hi. I would be so honored if you would follow my blog as well.

Country hugs, Sherry
