Columbian Doll in Process

The Maida Dolls Group has been having a Columbian Doll challenge.  I am not going to make today's deadline, but I am not far off.  I am using Connie Tognoli's wonderful 29" Columbian pattern to make this sweet classic American cloth doll.   I shrunk the pattern by half to make a smaller doll at around 14.5"   It's been a long time since I made a cloth only doll!  I'm out of practice painting faces on cloth.   The left picture shows in process and the right picture shows my doll face in its finished state.   Now to attach limbs and make clothing.  It was fun to do something a bit different and to try another kind of antique inspired doll. ~ Dixie Redmond
