22" 1850's American Cloth Doll................SOLD

I just had to try making one of these American cloth dolls with the painted faces and early faded clothing.  Of course sewing is my favourite part!  Her name is Sadie and she is 22" tall.  She quite likes her look in my country kitchen!
She is tattery and faded and worn but all in all I am pleased with her.  Sadie was a challenge for me to try and I hope you enjoy her photos.
Sadie is my number one of this type and signed and dated.
If you have any questions, Just email me:
Thanks for taking a look.



She arrived at her destination today and I have copied the lovely email that I just received from her new owner:
When I got home from the store, she was waiting at the back door. I couldn't wait to get that box open and Wow ! She is absolutely, Positively everything I thought she would be, just wonderful ! I see a future for these Dolls ! I love her so much. I flipped out over the Socks you sent and I bet you didn't even know that I was a Sock fanatic !!!!! I adore socks and these are some of the greatest I have ever seen ! Thank you so much. I know Sadie will be happy here and well loved,, you did a fabulous job on her as only you can do. I look forward to Maud pictures as she evolves. Thank you Kathy !

I can not reply directly to you because your comment does not give your email. If you email me at I can certainly help you. If you have a photo you could email me as well that would really help as I can tell more by the fabrics.
Happy to help if you contact me.
