Pinned It, Made It! Monday!

The stump prairie doll is like the Christmas ornies I made a couple years ago and a bigger version of some I've made for other swaps. I usually free hand a pattern but I had this one from a past project when I made a pumpkin man. The thought was to cut out two and it would be easier to make myself one later. Sometimes it works out and other times I find pieces neglected in a pile. So I just stuffed  and added the clothes and bonnet. As many of these as I've made I've never ended up with my own. This one was made for a recent swap. I googled  primitive prairie dolls since I couldn't find the one I thought I pinned.  This is a link to one I liked but it doesn't link up. I also found this one and my doll is similar except with no arms. This is a link to a Pinterest search. So if you sew there are a ton of ideas and if you don't there are a lot of shops selling prarie dolls.

There are so many Prim heart ornies on Pinterest to look at here is a link to one of the searches I did. I see so many more hearts I want to make. Another link with just heart ornies in the search. When I cut out the hearts I wasn't quite sure what I was going to do with them. I grunged them up (in the picture they don't look as grungy), I ripped tea stained muslin and used a marker to write the words.  They are pretty simple, I meant to add rusty pins and bells.

Those are cute. I love the prairie dolls and they remind me of Laura on Little House on the Prairie! I'm thinking one of these (especially maybe the hearts) would be a good simple sewing project for Joy to try sometime. She's trying to learn....we're trying to learn. :)

Thanks for participating in Pinned it Made it Monday, Allison!
