Today's feature~a Primitive Black Folk Art Doll

Today I'd like you to meet "Miss Faye".  She's not a pretty gal, but she does her job well and with pefectly primtive style! 
Miss Faye's job is to store your plastic bags from Walmart, grocery stores, etc. 
She's made of cotton that I painted and sanded for a worn look. Her dress is made of quilt shop fabric that has roosters on it. The apron is a plaid cotton homespun and I've attached a section of a pancake & waffle mix bag. To add a bit of whimsy and a cinnamon scent, I sewed on a little Raggedy Ann doll that has been primmed up with cinnamon.

Miss Faye's lips are stuffed and then handstitched on. Her nose is needle sculpted and her eyes are handpainted. Her hair is sheep's wool from TN and has been sewn on with tiny stitches to keep it in place.
Great addition to any farmhouse, country kitchen.
She's a pretty big girl, measuring in at aprox. 27" tall.

She is handmade by me, using a You Are Special pattern.
