Little Bonnet Betsy, A Primitive Cloth Doll, 10 Inches Tall is a design for my pattern shop, Moss Hill Primitives - Both Digital or Printed

It’s been said that the simple things in life often are the most loved, a saying that certainly applies to dolls. We know that the humblest of dolls, lovingly stitched together from whatever scraps of cloth were at hand, can be a child’s fondest treasure. 


Little Betsy represents this style of simple, handmade cloth doll where someone might have rescued material from the scrap bag to make a sweet doll. Her face is drawn in pencil and enhanced with a little ink. Even her under clothing is penciled onto her. She’s 10 inches tall and wears a skirt, a top, a shawl, shoes, and of course her bonnet!
