Hazard A Guess What I Am? Primitive Ghost Stump Doll Free E-Pattern

 


Who can resist a scary but adorable ghost?  Especially one who is a little confused.

Hazard A Guess What I Am? seems to have a bit of a problem in that people aren’t sure he’s a ghost. 

He can’t understand this because he thinks he’s scary. He scares himself. 

Hazard is a free standing ghost doll with a cloth body, and an embroidered face with button eyes. He is wearing a vest and multi-colored fringed scarf. “Hazard A Guess What I Am?” is coffee stained throughout.


He's a little confused, but he's not scary. What's up with that? 

You see, "Hazard A Guess What I Am?" has a problem with his heritage. 

He isn't even sure he is from a ghostly line. If you can't tell he's a ghost and his heredity is in question - how is he ever going to know? 

Sometimes he looks like a ghost, he feels like a ghost, and he walks like a ghost. But, is he really a ghost?

There's just something very charming about a trio of shelf sitter cloth dolls - don't you think?  Even if we're talking about a scarecrow in April.  

A little early for the Fall season - don't you think, Linda?

My Brian Snow Buddy Snowman Stump Doll Free E-Pattern


With the birds chirping and the smell of spring in the air I decided to release a few free snowman e-patterns.  

Now I know you might say, "Come on, Linda! Snowmen and snow-lady's, now!"  

My response is, "Why not!"  

So, here's the first of three snow people shelf sitter doll free e-patterns I'm releasing.   

Brian Snow Buddy was the first shelf sitter doll that I designed and is one of my favorites. The reason couldn't be because he has a story associated with him regarding one of my grandson's - or could it?

"Brian Snow Buddy" loves to snowboard and is always looking for a challenge. He looks for the toughest and steepest hill he can find. The steeper and rockier the better. He is a bit of a dare devil and, so far, has broken any bones.

He is also a bit of a flirt. All you have to do is look at his "Facebook" page to attest to that.

Here's his story:

The snowguy to the left is called "Brian Snow Buddy" and is named after one of my grandsons. 

I named him that because he is just so adorable, as is my grandson. 

He's my buddy, as is my grandson. 

He's my pal, as is my grandson. 

He's so squeezable, as is my grandson. 

He's just so huggable, as is my grandson. 

He's just so lovable, as is my grandson.

My "Peter - The Primitive Farmer and Margaret - The Dutiful Farmer's Wife" Primitive Stump Dolls Free E-Patterns


If you love making whimsical cloth shelf sitter dolls then you're going to love our "Peter - The Primitive Farmer and Margaret - The Dutiful Farmer's Wife" free  e-patterns.

Peter The Primitive Farmer believes that every day should be spent working hard and providing for your family. There is nothing like a good hard day of labor.  He gets up in the wee hours of the morning to start working on his farm. 

Margaret, being the dutiful farmer's wife that she is, gets up even earlier than her husband.

Why?

Because she has to prepare his breakfast so he has plenty of energy for working all day.


Margaret The Dutiful Farmer's Wife believes that she should do everything that she can to help her husband, Peter. 

So, she always has a home cooked meal ready for him at the end of a hard day of labor and at the beginning of the day so he has enough energy for all the demands of the farm.

Margaret gets up so early in the morning to prepare breakfast for Peter that at the end of the day she is a little tired. 

Peter understands this and when Margaret falls asleep on the sofa he just lets her sleep. 

She works so hard. 

She deserves her rest, too.

Rag-doll Anthony and Rag-doll Annabell Lee Free E-Patterns


"Rag-doll Anthony" and "Rag-doll Annabell Lee" aren't your average rag-dolls. They're very special rag-dolls. You see, they were born with all their seams on the outside.


Their parents were very concerned about this when they were born as they didn't want their children to have a difficult childhood. They were envisioning that they would both be teased unmercifully. You know how children can be! However, they were pleasantly surprised. All the the rag-doll children love both "Rag-doll Anthony" and "Rag-doll Annabell Lee."

The Rag-doll children feel that, "they may be different but, once you get to know them, you realize they are just like you and me." So, their seams being on the outside doesn't bother anyone in the rag-doll children's school yard. They are treated like anyone else and that suits "Rag-doll Anthony" and "Rag-doll Annabell Lee" just fine.

"Big Brother Andy" and "Kid Brother Randy" love each other as brothers. It's just that sometimes they act like a bunch of boys do and get on each others nerves. This inevitably leads to wrestling, which leads to fighting and then punching. Playfully, of course!

When the gloves start coming out is when their "Big Sister Annie" and "Kid Sister Frannie" intervene. They calm them down and straighten out whatever the problem is so the boys can - well, "be boys."
