The Dolls Product Lines Series - Christmas Carolers

It's Us! Ma, Pa, Sis, Bro, and Baby Walsh


I just love working with terracotta and creating all sorts of wonderful decorations.  Several years ago I decided to experiment and try making Christmas carolers and Santa decorations out of terracotta. They turned out wonderful so I made a bunch to give away as gifts. Everyone loves them so I thought I'd create e-patterns so you can make your own group of terracotta carolers and Santa's.

"It's Us! Ma, Pa, Sis, Bro, and Baby Walsh" is a pattern to create a family of terracotta carolers. There's Ma and Pa, and Sis and Bro, and a baby. All have painted terracotta bodies, painted wood knob heads, yarn or roving for their hair, knit caps, and scarves of various materials.

"It's Us! Ma, Pa, Sis, Bro, and Baby Walsh" are fun and easy to make and are adorable decorations for the holiday season.









Bowling For Carols, Henry


"Bowling For Carols, Henry" is a unique caroler. Not only does he love to sing, but he loves to bowl. And, bowling with Santa is one of his favorite past times. Unfortunately, Mrs. Claus has Santa so busy during the holiday season he doesn't have any leisure time. So, Henry is spending his holiday doing his second favorite activity - caroling.

"Bowling For Carols, Henry" is a self-standing male caroler with a painted face, wooden bowling pin body, dowel legs and half egg wood feet. He is wearing his favorite pair of BIG corduroy pants which are gathered at the waist and his warmest wool sweater. He has straight brown doll hair under his blue wool cap with pompom and has a fringed wool scarf wrapped around his neck. He's holding the bells for ringing in the next carol.

Bowling For Carols, June


"Bowling For Carols, June" just loves to sing and loves the holiday season when she can go caroling. She loves the music and loves the festive atmosphere of going from house to house. And, if she's offered warm cocoa - well, that's just icing on the cake.

"Bowling For Carols, June" is a self-standing female caroler with a painted face, wooden bowling pin body, dowel legs and half egg wood feet. She is wearing bloomers that are gathered at the waist and ankles. Her favorite shirt is gathered at the neck and tucked into her warmest wool skirt, which is fringed at the bottom. Her warmest and cheeriest wool cape is wrapped around her shoulders and keeps her warm against the winter chill. She has curly brown doll hair that is barely controlled underneath the fringed wool scarf that is wrapped around her head, She's holding the bells for ringing in the next carol.
