Anna Jane ~ A Primitive Cloth Doll, 12 Inches Tall Designed for My Pattern Business, Moss Hill Primitives - Digital or Printed

Anna Jane is a 12-inch primitive cloth doll of the type popular in America from the mid-1800s into the early 20th century. These dolls were homemade and had hand-sewn clothing, and often were the most-loved dolls in the household. 


This Anna Jane pattern gives you instructions for making her head, body, arms, and legs, as well as for creating her face and hair. I paint these faces right onto the muslin with no underpainting at all. You also have patterns and instructions for her skirt and bodice, pantalets, petticoat, and shoes. I’ve given Anna Jane’s dress a dividing bias strip as a colorful embellishment.
