New Primitive Doll: Emma

I just added a new doll to the Old World Primitives Etsy shop.
Meet Emma:

extreme primitive early American style doll

Emma is an extreme primitive early American style doll that I created using a Netty LaCroix design. She is made of tea-stained muslin stuffed with eco-friendly natural fibers. She has a needle sculpted nose, black pins for eyes, and her remaining features are hand drawn. Emma has patchy black hair and wears a brown calico dress and a black shawl pinned in place with a vintage button. This primitive doll measures 26″ tall from head to toe, and 16″ tall when sitting.


Excited side note: my primitive bunnies and my primitive pumpkin are each featured in two new Etsy treasuries, for a total of 4 today! I am so excited. Three are in the Treasury West and one is my first main Treasury feature. Check them out:

  2. I just found your blog. anyone that loves primitives, is a friend of mine. I belonged to Early Cloth and Paint group, where I met Melanee and Lone a few years ago. I don’t know if you were in that group, but anyway, I know I will like your blog so I have added it to my blog list. Please stop by website and blog when you can. I would love to hear from you. Your little bio was very intersting to me. Oh, of course you should know that I love old houses. When I am done working on rahabing my mother’s house, getting it ready for sale, I love posting photos of antiques and such.
    Happy day
