AMERICANA FOLK ART BUNNY RABBIT


                             I've been busy working on this adorable Americana Bunny Rabbit. He is made using coffee stained Osnaburg fabric. His navy blue top hat and coat jacket are made using a piece of soft brushed upholstery fabric. I bought a huge box of samples and this is one of them. His trousers are a striped corduroy and I accented that hat with a matching piece of fabric. He is all dressed up and ready for that special Americana Day.

This Rabbit was a custom order that has sold. I hope to make more like him soon!

African-American Folk Art Doll
   I sewed another African American Folk Art Doll (practicing my own pattern before offering for sale). She is wearing a bright and cheerful SUNFLOWER DRESS! I will be out of state for the next couple of weeks visiting  my daughter and  grandaughter....hope to take lots of pictures. Once I get home I will be sewing up a storm and working on another Izannah Walker doll.

AFRICAN AMERICAN DOLLS



Today I was sitting in my sewing room looking at these two dolls....and I couldn't resist taking their pictures! I thought they would look cute sitting in the foyer. They are sitting on an antique oak bench that is part of this wonderful woodwork ....                                      Now that they are together, you can see the difference in the two dolls. It looks like a mother and daughter. I may have to do a set for a Mother's Day.
