Playhouse gollies stage 3 is now complete. Sorry for the delay on this - due to a few physical issues that prevented me from doing much ( and sometimes no) stitching.
Bom stages are $58.30 and include everything for the quilt top and binding , including threads buttons and fusible web.
This stage can also be a stand alone pattern @$16.50 but is not available as a stand alone kit, as, as well as new fabrics being supplied in this stage, you need to rely on fabrics which have been supplied in earlier stages.
Playhouse gollies is a 5 stage Bom. All stages are priced the same.
Pattern $17.60 - includes the 3 buttons required for this project.
Four little windows in this design give you a peek into the sewing room, who is sitting where, and what they are working on. The design includes jars of buttons, spools of thread and the ever watchful helpful quilter's cat.
Nick is a 60cm (24") jolly Santa with hand drawn and colored face and mohair beard and hair.
He wears gathered trousers and a cuffed and trimmed coat which has a buttoned front and a belt with a buckle. He has black boots and a hat with a bell. His mitt type hands are simply wired so he can hold his toy sack which is adorned with ribbons and bells.
One of my two favorite Katkin's designs, Lizzie is a 66cm (26") cloth doll with hair made from torn fabric and yarn which is tied into pigtails held together with ribbons. She wears a buttoned and collared blouse with a lace trimmed pinafore and pantaloons. She also wears socks and ribbon tied gathered shoes.
Clare is a 56cm (22") cloth doll with a hand drawn and colored face. You may like to add some face sculpting as an option. She has knotted elbows and knees to slow for flexibility in posing. Her shoulder joint is also flexible, and detail is added with stitched fingers and wrists. Clare's clothing comprises blouse, pants and a pinafore with contrast trim and lace. Her boots are sewn in and tied with ribbon.
Kate is a 22" (56cm) cloth doll with yarn hair and a hand drawn and colored face. Her head and arms are made separately and then sewn to the body. She has stitched knee and elbow joints and wired fingers. Her clothing comprises lace trimmed pants and a collared blouse with puffed sleeves and a back opening. Her pinafore also buttons down the back and has cross over straps that button to the pinny at the front.
