Patti Pumpkin ....selling her pumpkins for 5 cents...



My first pumpkin doll this year...It's a sweet meadows farm pattern, she is about 24 inches tall, made her dress and apron from a pretty quilt quality fall print and I have attached two pumpkin buttons to her apron straps, loons are a putty color. I love how her face turned out, she has such a sweet look about her, her eyes are handpainted green, her nose has been handstitched along with her mouth...She has pretty blushed green cheeks and has been painted and sanded several times to get her just right... her green stem and leaves on top of her pumpkin head have been handpainted, stained and sanded as well as her legs and shoes. She has a cute lil handmade tag that says "Pumpkins 5 cents"... Her white pumpkin she holds has been handmade, painted and stained.

She was so much fun to make!! I WANT TO KEEP HER....LOL..She'll be for sale on my .com site this week along with many other new items...I've been sewing sewing sewing lately doing festivals at the craft malls, so have lots of new stuff to add to my sites...Hope you can drop by all this week. Oh, I also did a smaller pumpkin doll but she sold yesterday, but I will post her anyway, I can always make more...She was inspired by Sweet Meadows Farm..Maureen's new pattern coming out....Punkin Pye and Ice Cream..I think is the name of it, will have to check the exact name of the pattern......here's a pic of her...



Hope you are having as much fun as I am making fall pretties...Made a ton of new witches also, (attached one) that I'm going to post...Made them a couple weeks ago for my festivals......Enjoy the fall season...it's almost here...!!!!



Will be doing a new giveaway also this week...a choice between three new fall dollies, a pumpkin annie, and a witch and a ghost dollie, similar to the ones shown here...so check back midweek...



This lil gal was made from a Patti Ratti's pattern...she turned out soooo dang cute...lol..what fun to make...thanks Patti for the inspiration...

Also, have been doing candle mats, that I'm going to post on my .com also...here's a sample of one also....



Fun fun...enjoy !!!!!
