Pansy Poppet, A Cloth Primitive Queen Anne Doll, 18 inches tall, designed for my pattern business, Moss Hill Primitives - Digital or Printed

This pattern helps you create a doll that would have been treasured during the reign of England’s Queen Anne in the early1700s. Back then, dolls were popular playthings for children and adults alike. They were either wooden or cloth and often wore elaborate clothing in the style of the Queen Anne period.


“Poppet” is an old British term for a lovable child or a favorite doll. I call this doll “Pansy Poppet” because I’ve designed her facial features like those of other Queen Anne dolls, and she’s adorned with a painted pansy on her bodice.


Pansy Poppet is 18 inches tall. This pattern gives you instructions for making her head, body, arms, and legs, along with her face and hair. You also have patterns and instructions for her skirt, as well as her painted-on bodice, stockings and shoes. My poppet patterns have been featured in both Early American Life and Prims magazines in recent years.
