Simple Early Doll and More....

This is what I have been doing the month of March ! Sewing for the most part ! I made a simple early doll with her own pin keep box.. The box matches the bluebird pin keep box I have for sale in my etsy shop.. click the photo on the sidebar.

I have also made two Civil war journals.. one with Confederate currency and one with Union currency and your choice of photo.

I love these Civil War Journals ! The reproduction currency came from the Smithsonian Museum of American History when I was there in March.

From my own pattern, I made a Colonial Ladies Pocket from osnaburg and a civil war reproduction looking fabric. I embroidered the flower design on the front and it has been coffee dyed for an old time worn look. The 20 " long bonnet is made from muslin and is coffeedyed.

They are listed in my little corner of TDIPT Mercantile this month. click the link to take a peek ~

In between sewing , I have been getting out and walking laps around the mall and outside when the weather is warm.

As for the house... cleaning, etc... looks like that will be a project this week !
