Dolls

Today I stopped at JoAnn's and found a copy of the new magazine called Prims - I've heard good things about it on other blogs so I'd been watching for it. Lucky me, I even got to use my 50% off coupon for it, which is a good thing because $15 for a magazine is just crazy!  It has tons of prim dolls in it that are so interesting to look at! I'm not huge into making dolls, but I have made a few through the years. This is one of my favorites - a pattern from Kindred Spirits. Her wings, the heart, and the flowers on her dress are all hooked, and I love how they add a bit of extra texture and interest to the doll.



This is my favorite doll in the magazine - it was a corroboration project between Kim Dubay and Andra Hepler. The doll's face is hooked and is supposed to look like it's made of granite like on an old gravestone. I just love her wings, and the expression on her face is so sweet. They did a great job on it!



If you're in to primitive dolls at all, keep your eyes open for this magazine and snag your own copy - I think you'll like it!

Those "specialty" magazines are expensive! I like to use my coupons too if I have to have one. That last doll was a little scarey. Looks like Denver was fun. Mimi

Those are pretty neat dolls. The hooking really makes them special
