Started My 5th Artful Gathering Class - YIPPEE!


I have been looking forward to taking my 5th class at Artful Gathering for several months.  It's ART-S2-307 The Imaginarium: Anthologies of an Art Doll with Mary Jane Chadbourne and is a mixed media doll class.

My class started on Wednesday and I can already tell it's gong to be a fabulous class.  Fantastic teacher and wonderful group of students.  I just know I'm going to have a blast.

I've never created mixed media dolls before so this will be new for me.

Don't worry - I'll be sure to blog about my creations.

Why He's No Scary Frankenstein! - Patterns & Handmade Doll



Don't be frightened. He won't harm you. He's no scary Frankenstein!

In fact, he's basically harmless.

He might be a "Frankenstein" in essence or appearance, but he considers himself just another "primitive."

Primitive Andy Frankenstein has a coffee stained cloth body and embroidered face with black bead eyes.   He's wearing a coffee stained and fringed shirt with 3/4 length sleeves and large tattered and fringed pants with patches. He's also sporting a wool felt vest with patches.

He has a small tattered ribbon tied around his neck, and wild black cut hair along the sides and top of his head. Old buttons are used for his head bolts and raffia is tied on his legs and feet for his raggedy stripes.

"Primitive Andy Frankenstein" just loves the fact that he's coffee stained throughout.

Why?

Because it provides him with a wonderful tan on his face and a wonderful aroma everywhere he goes.

In fact, other primitives often ask where he got his "coffee glow" and his "coffee aroma."

Primitive Andy Frankenstein just boasts "My Linda" gave it to me.

She's wonderful.

Primitive Andy Frankenstein might look like a regular Frankenstein, but he knows better. He knows he's a "Primitive" and that makes him special.

Crowin Mike - Primitive Scarecrow Pattern and Handmade Doll Ornament



There are scarecrows and there are SCARECROWS! And, then there is "Crowin Mike!"

You're probably wondering what's so different about "Crowin Mike!" as I'm sure he looks like any other scarecrow. In fact, he looks quite charming and harmless. Well, you'd be wrong.

You see "Crowin Mike" is a primitive scarecrow ornament with a penchant for witches, ghosts, and goblins.

Hang out with crows! Oh, no - not "Crowin Mike!" They're just a bunch of birds. He wants to hang out with the "villains" of the Fall season - the ghosts, goblins, and witches. Why, "Crowin Mike" even claims to be friends with Frankenstein and Dracula. In fact, his favorite movie is "The Headless Horseman!" Oh, My!

What kind of a scarecrow is "Crowin Mike?" Well, actually he's quite the actor. He had you all fooled - didn't he? He really is an adorable scarecrow. Amiable, kind, and willing to lend a hand where ever he can. He's even willing to help the ghosts, goblins and witches do their thing. Fooled you again, - didn't he?

"Crowin Mike" is not your average scarecrow. Oh, no - not "Crowin Mike!" Scarecrow? Not a scarecrow? Actor? Not and actor? Bad boy? Not a bad boy? Just what kind of scarecrow is he? Based on his name you'd think he'd be "crowin" about what he is - but, he won't. Crowin Mike's lips are sealed.

"Crowin Mike!" is a 9" primitive scarecrow ornament and has coffee stained cloth body with an embroidered and watercolor penciled face. He is wearing a fringed and patched shirt and fringed and patched plaid pants. He's also sporting a floppy flannel hat, orange and natural colored raffia hair, and lace tied boots with patches.

He is quite the scarecrow and quite happy to "crow" about his appearance. Ask him to "crow" about his "villain" friends - well, that's another matter.

She's The Sweetest Witch Of All! Primitive Annie


Watch out for her.

She can be quite frightening when she wants to be.

Sometimes she gets lonely and tries to be nice.

Everyone needs a little company from time to time. Even Primitive Witchy Annie.

Don't you feel bad for her?

In fact, she'd actually like to have some real friends. That way she could always call them when she's lonely and when she can feel a real "Watch Out My Pretty I'm Going To Get You!" mood coming on.

Primitive Witchy Annie has a coffee stained cloth body and embroidered face with black bead eyes.  She's wearing a coffee stained, tattered, and fringed dress, a tattered apron with bow, and gathered bloomers.

She has lace-tied boots, patches on her clothes and wild black hair along the sides and top of her head. Her raggedy leg stripes are sewn on with black floss.

She has a lined cape with patches and wired witches hat. Because she has a lined cape she feels she is a little above the rest of the witches. They only have wool or black felt capes. Nothing as nice as Primitive Annie Witch has.

Wouldn't you agree?

So, do you want to be her friend? She promises she'll try to prevent her ""Watch Out My Pretty I'm Going To Get You!" mood from coming on.

If you want to be her friend just don't wear any "ruby red slippers" when you come to visit. They bring back too many bad memories for her and might just trigger that "Watch Out My Pretty I'm Going To Get You!" mood coming on.

Punkin Ornaments Are We! - Free Pumpkin Ornaments E-Pattern



I decided to try and make some of my seasonal e-patterns FREE.

My problem is that it's so hard for me to decide. Which ones?

I don't know about other designers, but I tend to get very attached to my creations - even the patterns. I suspect other designers do get attached to their creations, too.

It doesn't have to be something that took me forever to create and make. For me it can be something as simple as a pumpkin. Sometimes the simpler - the better!

So, I thought maybe the free e-pattern I would offer would be something just in time for the Fall. And, what could be a better choice for Fall than pumpkins.

LW161 Punkin Ornaments Are We! A Trio Of Ornaments FREE E-Pattern - 2" Pumpkin Ornaments - Pattern Classification - Beginner

Punkin ornaments are a fun group of "crazy guys" to make for the Fall. They are 2" cloth pumpkin ornaments with embroidered faces who just like to hang out just about anywhere. Hang'em up! Stick'em in a bowl of potpourri! Line them up on a shelf or even add them to a fall wreath. I hang some of mine from the door knobs in my kitchen and line others up in a long bowl surrounded by miniature cinnamon pumpkins.

They may be similar in size, but their diversity of color and the position of their embroidered faces make them unique. It's okay to be similar and part of a trio, but they each have there own personality which is reflected in their color and their face. The punkins are happy about that.

For all my pattern creations I usually only make one or at the most two dolls. One is to support the pattern and the other is usually to sell. This was one of the rare times when I did make more than 2.

To view and download my free e-pattern please CLICK HERE. You'll be brought to Google Drive where you can view our free e-pattern in a compressed picture mode. Then just download our free .pdf e-pattern from the File menu in the upper left hand corner. The pictures will be downloaded in full resolution.

Scare Me Dazed - New Scarecrow Ornament E-Pattern and Print Pattern



You've met "Scare Me Happy!" and "Scare Me Melancholy!" - now we'd like you to meet "Scare Me Dazed!"  He's the middle brother and is always - well, kind of dazed! He is definitely in a fog most of the time.

When "Scare Me Dazed!" was born he was awoken out of a peaceful sound sleep and has never been able to recover. He was startled awake. It's no wonder he's never recovered!  His brothers know better than to ever ask "Scare Me Dazed!" to do anything for them. He'd willingly agree, but forget what he was supposed to do before he left the room.  It's not that he isn't smart! He just can never find his way out of the fog! He's not even sure if any crows come to visit him or whether or not he's doing his job.

"Scare Me Dazed" is a 6" cloth scarecrow ornament.  He has an embroidered and watercolor penciled muslin face, burlap hat, raffia hair, and his head is atop a grapevine ball. He has the most beautiful bright blue eyes that are always staring as if he's, well - in a fog! He has rust colored gathered lace an ribbon bow decorations on the top and bottom of his grapevine ball. He has a ribbon hanger so he can be hung just about anywhere and makes a wonderful addition to any one's Fall decor.

Scare Me Melancholy - New Scarecrow Ornament E-Pattern and Print Pattern



You've already met "Scare Me Happy!" Now we'd like you to meet "Scare Me Melancholy!" And, melancholy he certainly is.  "Scare Me Melancholy!" is the oldest of the 3 "Scarecrow" brothers. Maybe that accounts for his being so melancholy!  His younger brothers are "Scare Me Dazed!" and he's always in a fog and the other brother is "Scare Me Happy!" and he's always - well, too darn happy!

"Scare Me Melancholy!" was born with a an amazed look on his face and instead of crying when he was born he came out wondering why he was born.  And, he has been wondering ever since. He'll hang for hours on end so pensive that none of the crows will visit him.

Now that's alright, because he's doing his job keeping the crows away. It's just that "Scare Me Melancholy" doesn't understand why the crows don't want to visit him. He might be pensive and might always be reflecting, but he's not gloomy.

Scare Me Melancholy!" wishes his brothers could understand why he's so reflective. He loves his brothers and can be very thoughtful at times. He just loves to reminisce and talk about "the good ole" days - back when.......

"Scare Me Melancholy" is a 6" cloth scarecrow ornament.  He has an embroidered and watercolor penciled muslin face, burlap hat, curly raffia hair, and his head is sitting atop a bale of straw. He has a rust printed fabric bow to adorn his neck and one to adorn his burlap hat. He has a ribbon hanger so he can be hung just about anywhere and makes a wonderful addition to any one's Fall decor.

William Come Or Won't They? Primitive Scarecrow Shelf Sitter Doll Decoration




"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.

He is a free standing scarecrow doll with a cloth body, an embroidered face with button eyes. He is wearing a patched coat with buttons and pockets, two scarves, and a hat. His hair is made of raffia and he’s holding a stained wooden rake. “William Come or Won’t They?” is coffee stained throughout.

He's scarecrow. And, he knows he's a scarecrow through and through. He comes from a long line of scarecrows.

"William Come or Won't They?" has a different problem. He just can't figure out whether the crows are going to come or not. If they do, he wants to be prepared.

After all, that's what they taught him in the "Scarecrow Boy Scouts" and the "Scarecrow Army." "Always Be Prepared!" So, he's ready.

Come on all you crows. Hey, all you crows! Williams ready for yah!!! Come and get him.

Gotta Love Pumpkin Decorations and Pumpkin Ornaments



I just love the Fall and all the vivid colors. And, I love pumpkins, scarecrows, Fall leaves, and apple orchards. So, of course, when designing some of my new Fall dolls I had to create some colorful and adorable pumpkins. Pumpkins for some of my new doll patterns and pumpkins for home decorations like: ornaments.

Gotta Love Pumpkin Ornaments - 3" Pumpkin Ornaments - Pattern Category - Skill Level - Beginner

And, of course, I had to create an e-pattern so you could make your own.  I hope you enjoy my new e-pattern.  If you'd like to make a pair of pumpkin ornaments of your own please CLICK HERE for my e-pattern or CLICK HERE for my print pattern.

I created several sets of 2 pumpkin ornaments each for my Linda Walsh Originals Handmade Dolls & Craft website.  If you'd like to buy a set of my handmade pumpkin ornaments please CLICK HERE.

 Small, Medium, and Large Pumpkin Trio - 3", 4", and 5" Pumpkins

I've been wanting to make a trio of Fall fabric themed quilted pumpkins for quite some time and thought if not now then when. So, when designing some runners and place-mats for my home this past Fall I decided to design and make my trio of pumpkins. I thought three different sized 6-section pumpkins of various Fall themed fabrics would make a really colorful and cheery Fall display.

My trio of pumpkins includes one 3" pumpkin, one 4" pumpkin and one 5" pumpkin.  The leaves are hand stitched along the center lines for vein leaf emphasis.

I was pleased with the pumpkin trio turned out. The are definitely bright and cheery and make a wonderful Fall decoration.

I created two sets of 3 pumpkins each for my Linda Walsh Originals Handmade Dolls & Craft website.  If you'd like to buy my handmade pumpkin trio please CLICK HERE.
