Rag Doll Challenge

Miss Tulip Belle

Miss Tulip Belle was made for the Rag Doll Challenge hosted by Blithe and Blonde. The doll was to reflect the springtime, so I went with a tulip theme. I decided that instead of fabric I would use Kraft paper. Boy oh boy was that hard to stuff. Miss Tulip suffered a few tears here and there. I think that if I was ever to do this again I would try to stuff as I sewed, rather than doing it through the open head. She is rather primitive looking so perhaps we can say that it was a primitive rag doll. LOL. Below are close-ups of her dress and head.



Though she didn't turn out as nice as I had hoped, I had fun doing the doll. Next time I will definitely use fabric. Happy Spring!

Nice to meet you, Nancy!
And Miss Tulip Belle. I love her dress.
I, too, have been married to the same dude for 40-something years and have 2 offspring and 2 grands!

Hi Nancy! Miss Tulip Belle turned out so cute! I can imagine how hard she was to stuff - I made mine out of fabric, and it was hard too... I love the bonnet you made for her - very cute!
