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?

Mabel I Won’t Cast A Spell?” Primitive Witch Stump Doll Free E-Pattern



Mabel I Won't Cast A Spell! can’t decide whether to be a good witch or a bad witch. 

She’s watched “The Wizard of Oz” so many times your head would spin. 

And, sometimes, hers does. 

She is a witch after all.


Mabel is a free standing primitive witch doll with a cloth body, an embroidered face, and a full head of curly gray. She is wearing a lined cape, dress, fringed scarf, and lined witches hat. “Mabel I Won’t Cast A Spell?” is coffee stained throughout.

There is no confusion with Mabel. She knows she's a witch.

William Come or Won’t They? Primitive Scarecrow Stump Doll Free E-Pattern


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?

Nah! I love using stump dolls to decorate for every season and holiday.  

If you do, too then you're going to love my “William Come or Won’t They? primitive scarecrow stump doll free e-pattern.

Why not make a couple now in time for next Fall's scarecrow season.  Who says scarecrows can only come out in the Fall.


William Come Or Won't They? can’t figure out whether the crows are going to come or not. 

If they do, he’s prepared.

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.
