Today's feature doll~ Extreme Primitive Black Sock Doll

Great sock dolls made with old black socks, and I promise they don't stink!

Momma holds her baby which is also made from a sock and it's wrapped in a piece of vintage quilt. The baby in quilt is handstitched to the mom's arms.

Both the mom and the baby have cheesecloth wrapped on their heads. Mom's dress is made from a fringed tablecloth and is the only part of the doll that is machine sewn. All other parts of this doll set, were sewn by hand.

The faces are very primitively stitched with embroidery floss. The mother doll has no support for her neck, so her head is floppy. This will not matter when she is sitting or hanging. The doll does not have legs.

I have heavily coffee stained the dolls and their clothing. They are stuffed with fabric scraps for recycling purposes and also for a feel like the old dolls would of been made.

From the top of the head to the bottom of the dress, the mother doll measures aprox. 15" tall. The doll, arms, and baby are all made from one sock.

***Sale price listed is for ONE mom doll with baby.
