For my I Love the USA Blog Hop, I created a Patriotic America the Beautiful Statue of Liberty Primitive Doll. I am not a seamstress, and I can great when it comes to using a sewing machine on paper, and not to bad in making things that don't require the perfect stitch. So, that is way I created a Patriotic America the Beautiful Statue of Liberty Primitive Doll using Laura Kelly's America the Beautiful Fabric.
The project was really a fun project to create, and if you can sew basic stitches you can create one similar. Now, I must tell you that as I was shopping at our local Joann Fabric Store, I came across more of Laura Kelly's FABULOUS Fabric and I couldn't walkout without getting several yards of them. So, be sure to check out what I create with those fabulous finds.
So, here she goes:
I made the doll using muslin and coffee dying it to age all the fabric. I then sewed the Laura Kelly's America the Beautiful fabric to create a skirt for my doll. I added some of her Buttons Galore & More line of buttons Laura Kelly's Mixed Buttons to adorn her skirt.
The twig around her head I actually picked up at Joann's and thought it would make the perfect crown for her. I colored in her eyes and sewed in her nose. I found a fabric quarter while shopping at Joann's for her shirt and pockets, which I also aged in coffee.
I love ragged dolls and this one was by far the cutest little thing I have made thanks to Laura Kelly's America the Beautiful fabric.
While I was on the inspirational note, I also created a lovely wall hanging canvas decor for Buttons Galore and More using Laura's fabric, so be sure to visit Buttons Galore & More blog to see what else you can create with the extra pieces that you have left over.
Well, I hope you enjoyed my project for today. Be sure to visit the other talented ladies participating on the hop and leave comments.
