Mouse House Prims.

I've been blog hopping and discovered so many amazing Prim Dolls. They are such characterful little ladies so I really wanted to make my own.

Thank you to Pamela at Our Pioneer Homestead for her free doll  pattern which has given me a good start. Thank you Pamela, I hope you like her.

 I've stuffed her with rags and aged her body and her clothes.
 I made the little cushion several years ago.

I am a huge fan of  Flora Thompsons memiors of her childhood in Oxfordshire in the late 19th century. It has been a really successful series on the BBC and such a lovely story of life in the English countryside.

My Prim dolls are based on this evocative story and so are 'English Prims'.

 This is 'Emma'. She lives in the hamlet with her family, she works hard but it's often hard to make ends meet.     

These are the things she makes to sell in the town, Peg dolls, pin cushions and sewing boxes.

I'm busy now creating her friends and I'll show you soon.

Hi Angela, looks like you are having a lot of creative fun. This is certainly a departure from your normal designs. I do love prim items -- and at one time collecting all things country. Those little peg dolls are the cutest. Everything you create turns out beautifully. Hope you are having great weather and a wonderful weekend. Tammy
