My 2 in 1 “Grandma Aurora May - On An Expedition! and Grandpa Lewis - On An Expedition!” Victorian Lady and Gentleman Art Dolls NEW Combo E-Pattern


If you love making Victorian cloth dolls then you're going to love our “Grandma Aurora May - On An Expedition! and Grandpa Lewis - On An Expedition!” 2 in 1 combo e-pattern.

"Grandma Aurora May - On An Expedition!" is ready to go. She's been ready for over a year and is anxious to get started on her expedition with "Grandpa Lewis - On An Expedition!" "Grandpa Lewis - On An Expedition!" isn't as anxious to go. He loves to please his wife, but is really more of a homebody and would prefer to stay home working on his coin and stamp collections. Grandma Aurora May loves a good adventure and loves finding new places and new venues to explore. She'd rather spend all day looking for a great site for a picnic and always looks forward to their annual expedition to the beach.

Her main reason is that she loves to spend time with her grandchildren and loves cooking for them. It's not that Grandpa Lewis doesn't love his grandchildren - he adores them. It's just he doesn't have a lot of patience for his grand children's boundless energy and "ants in their pants" inability to sit still. After one day at the beach with the grandchildren he's ready to go home. Grandma Aurora May tells him to lighten up a bit. That's the way children are. Full of energy. Exploring everything. What's wrong with that?

Well, Grandpa Lewis doesn't mind enthusiasm and willingness to learn. He just can't stand little idle hands playing with the cherished coins in his coin collection and touching all the stamps in his stamp collection. And he can't leave his collections at home while he's on a three month expedition to the beach. He'd go stir crazy without something to keep him occupied all that time. Grandma Aurora May really does understand her husband and knows that she has to keep him happy or their won't be anymore expeditions to the beach. And, that she wouldn't be happy about. So, each and every year she tells the grandchildren that Grandpa Lewis's stamp and coin collections are off limits. Most of the time the grandchildren listen. Sometimes, however, there are those idle hands.......

He fancies himself quite the gentleman and expert on rare coins and stamps. Now if he could just keep his grandchildren away from his coin and stamp collection. He loves his grandchildren but thinks they need to learn the value of a rare coin and stamp collection and how destructive idle hands can be.

My “Mabel - I Might!” Country Art Doll New E-Pattern


"Mabel - I Might!"can and "Mabel - I Might!" will. She is strong and she is able and is a PROUD member of the “Gray Is Beautiful!” Club.

"Mabel - I Might" has wild, dark gray hair and always reminds me of "Rosie - The Riveter" from the WWII commercials. You know, the one on all the posters wearing a bandanna and forging steel. There isn’t anything that Mabel can’t do.

Mabel is all ready in her denim overalls for her job at the steel factory. But, she thinks that just because she forges steel doesn't mean she can't wear fancy bloomers.

So what if they show below her overalls? You got a problem with that?

If you do, take my advice, and don't tell Mabel.

Why? Because there isn't anything Mabel can't do once she puts her mind to it.

In fact, she proudly boasts that anything a man can do she can do better. Well, there a few things Mabel might not be able to do because of sheer physical strength limitations but I'm not about to tell her that.

Are you kidding? She can bench press 350 pounds. She might just decide to knock my head off just to prove her point.

That's, okay, Mabel. We believe you

She has wild gray hair that sticks straight out of the sides and top of her head. She has a cloth body, embroidered face with a wonderful smile, lace trimmed bloomers, denim jumper, and checkered shirt. She has a fringed bows tied around her neck and a fringed bow in her hair.

My “Sweet Julianna” Primitive Art Doll New E-Pattern



"Sweet Julianna! Sweet Julianna!" There should be a song about "Sweet Julianna."

Sweet Julianna is a sweet and shy young primitive woman. She doesn't want to intrude. She just wants to help where ever she can.

She loves cleaning, gardening, sewing, crafting, decorating and cooking. She's extremely creative and oh so clever.

She was "Martha Stewart" before Martha was.

Sweet Julianna is just the sweetest little thing. You can't help but love her. And, she has a head of the most gorgeous dark gray curly hair that you'd ever want to see. It is so thick that it is the envy of all her graying friends.

Her goal in life is to serve others and do a little crafting."

She has a mass of dark grey curly hair which she is trying to control to no avail under her kerchief. She is a free standing doll with a cloth body, embroidered face with glasses, frayed house dress with lace collar, and frayed apron with bib and ties. “Sweet Julianna” is coffee stained throughout. She just wants to help.

My “Magdalene -The Drama Queen” Victorian Art Doll New E-Pattern




Magdalene is very much the Drama Queen and is always in need of her smelling salts. She'll faint at the drop of a hat.

Of course, it's all part of her act. She craves attention and wants everyone to constantly attend to her every need. In order to get everyone to pay attention she sighs, huffs, groans, and moans and will even faint for a second or two.

I don't know why but every time I look at her I think of King George. Maybe its her full head of very, very thick white curly hair with a speckle of gray and black intertwined.

Maybe it's because her hair reminds me of the wigs the British barrister's wear in court. Or, maybe, it's her outfit.

Magdalene has a mass of thick, white curly hair on her head with a bow in back. She has a cloth body with an embroidered face and is wearing the latest in fashion - a flounce dress with matching and visible bloomers.

Her dress is so big she requires assistance to get up from her chair. Of course, that doesn't bother Magdalene on bit. Her goal in life is to be waited on at all times."

Make room for "Magdalene - The Drama Queen!" She needs plenty of room and plenty of attention.

Magdalene has a mass of thick white/gray hair all over her head with a bow on the top of her head. She has a cloth body with an embroidered face, a puffy dress with two complimentary fabrics, lace collar, matching bloomers, and a lace embroidered decoration on the front of her dress. Her mission in life is to always draw all the attention to herself.
