12 thoughts on “Primitive Folk Art Dolls

  1. Really interesting site – love Frederick Bunworth! – Did not realise that these types of dolls had heads made from other materials – I would like to find out more about the history of these types of dolls – do you have any recommendations for books etc?

  2. Was wondering what paper clay is? Also, I’ve noticed on some primitive dolls and pillow or whatever, people tend to tea stain the material, but what do they use to make it hard and have that primitive smell to it???

  3. I love your dolls! You inspire me to start sewing! I will surely buy your
    patterns in the future.

  4. I love your patterns, however I am looking for a pattern on the aunt jamama dolls. I have one of the dolls but want to learn how to make them.
