Just Because Giveaway :)

APP ~Tammy

Well, I decided to do a doll giveaway!!

I had been thinking about a fun twist for a giveaway, but it will have to wait until next time.

Life's too hectic right now.  I’m sure most of you can relate. :)

What’s the occasion for the giveaway??

Absolutely nothing, I just want to give back to all my fabulous followers.

So, I’m offering a chance to win this primitive rag doll.

Of course, she must bring her little church doll along too!!

A Primitive Place ~Tammy

This primitive set was handmade by me.

The large doll measures approx. 18.5" tall and approx. 11" at the widest points.

I made her to look like a make-do doll a Mommy may have created for her daughter many years ago.

A Primitive Place ~Tammy

I used old cotton fabric for the body.

You may notice the white on white patches; these are true old repairs that were on the fabric when I cut out the body.

How wonderfully Prim!!

A Primitive Place ~Tammy

The colored fabric patches are also made from early fabric, but I added them to give the baby more of a worn and repaired appearance.

Everything was hand or machine sewn, no glue.

A Primitive Place ~Tammy

She is rag stuffed which gives her that wonderful old lumpy weight and feel.

A Primitive Place ~Tammy

I made her dress from vintage brown checked cotton fabric.

Her apron is made of two true, antique, blue calico fabrics.

Her bonnet is made from an old quilt top.

*I just love brown and blue together!

A Primitive Place ~Tammy

Her church doll is made of burlap and rag stuffed.
Primitive clothing made from vintage fabrics.
The church doll measures approx. 6" tall by 2.5" wide.

A Primitive Place ~Tammy

I put both dolls and their clothing through an aging process that gives them that wonderful olde', prim, worn appearance.

Tammy I absolutely love her. I too have fallen in love with the blues and browns! I never thought there would be a color that would overtake my love of red, lol! And isn't it just perfect that the walls in my new house, diningroom and kitchen...are brown on the bottom! I'm going to slowly add more brown and blue!! Think I may even need to paint a few pieces of furniture. So wouldn't she just go perfect!!! Lol.. I've done a blog post about her, added her to my sidebar, and am following your selling blog! Thanks for such a great giveaway! Katie

TheCrankyCrow said...

She is absolutely, positively, adorable Tammy! That endearing little smirk of a smile is so charming.....I would love to be entered in your wonderful giveaway....I meet your criteria (am a follower, am commenting, live in the USA - and you know where to find me....) I have also posted on my blog sidebar, and am a follower of your selling blog. Lastly, I have signed up to be a Linky follower. (Unfortunately, I've been ditzing with that all afternoon....I had to sign up for an account first sign Linky is new to me, and I never got the needed validation email. Tried 3x, and still no luck, so did the "contact me/will do it manually" option and have not heard back yet. (They're probably off having a rendezvous with your blog roll). But I will continue working at this and get myself "linked" up one way or another.....Thanks for the great opportunity....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
