The Doll Products Lines Series - Peter, Pamela, Alice, and Denis Loves His Big Eyes



Who can resist colonial cloth dolls with large embroidered eyes?  Not I.  If you can't either you're going to love our “Denis Loves His Big Eyes and Alice Loves Her Big Eyes” colonial boy and girl dolls 2 in 1 combo e-pattern.

“Alice Loves Her Big Eyes” is the epitome of a proper, colonial girl. She has manners and believes in being friendly and courteous at all times. Her one slight flaw is that she can’t stop looking at herself in the mirror. She’s just in love with her big, beautiful eyes.

Both she and her twin brother, Denis, inherited their good looks from their mother.

“Denis Loves His Big Eyes” isn’t at all proper like his twin sister, Alice. He might dress properly but he’s a rascal and the girls just love to run their fingers through his full head of curly burgundy hair.

He also spends a lot of time in front of the mirror just looking at his big, beautiful eyes.



If you love making colonial cloth dolls then you're going to love our "Pamela With The Big Eyes Loves Her Fall Colors" and her brother, "Peter With The Big Eyes Loves His Fall Outfit" 2 in 1 combo e-pattern.

"Pamela With The Big Eyes Loves Her Fall Colors" and her brother, "Peter With The Big Eyes Loves His Fall Outfit", are unusually close. They're fraternal twins, born two minutes apart on October 12 - Columbus Day. As a result they love the Fall and it's bright, beautiful colors, and they love being Colonial. Born and bred in Salem, MA.

So, it is no surprise that they love to wear their best Fall outfits when out for a walk on a beautiful Fall day. They love to walk down near the pier and the harbor. It's just so beautiful and peaceful down there. Plus, when they get hungry they can have afternoon tea and one of their favorite scones at a local cafe.

Pamela is a quiet, shy but proper, colonial girl. She was taught how to be a gracious lady and believes in being proper, friendly and courteous at all times - especially when out in public. Her only problem is that everyone keeps looking at her and her big, beautiful eyes - especially the young "gentlemen.". With all the eyes on her she gets self-conscious and starts to blush. And, when that happens she blushes from head to toe. Then all the young gentleman can't help themselves and vie for her attention - which irks her brother, Peter, to no end.

All in all Pamela is the epitome of a proper Colonial girl. If only the young "gentlemen" would leave her alone.

Peter is a terrific brother but is a tad conceited. He also has a bit of a temper - especially when it comes to his sister and all the young "gentlemen" vying for her attention. He knows she is absolutely beautiful with her big, beautiful eyes but hates all the attention she gets from the young "gentleman." Since he also has big, beautiful eyes he gets an enormous amount of attention himself from all the young "ladies." Of course, he doesn't mind this. That's okay. Its' just not okay for Pamela.

Pete is the epitome of a Colonial "gentleman" - except when it comes to his sister, Pamela, and his temper gets the better of him.

My “Magdalene -The Drama Queen” Victorian Art Doll New E-Pattern



Magdalene is very much the Drama Queen and is always in need of her smelling salts. She'll faint at the drop of a hat.

Of course, it's all part of her act. She craves attention and wants everyone to constantly attend to her every need. In order to get everyone to pay attention she sighs, huffs, groans, and moans and will even faint for a second or two.

I don't know why but every time I look at her I think of King George. Maybe its her full head of very, very thick white curly hair with a speckle of gray and black intertwined.

Maybe it's because her hair reminds me of the wigs the British barrister's wear in court. Or, maybe, it's her outfit.

Magdalene has a mass of thick, white curly hair on her head with a bow in back. She has a cloth body with an embroidered face and is wearing the latest in fashion - a flounce dress with matching and visible bloomers.

Her dress is so big she requires assistance to get up from her chair. Of course, that doesn't bother Magdalene on bit. Her goal in life is to be waited on at all times."

Make room for "Magdalene - The Drama Queen!" She needs plenty of room and plenty of attention.

Magdalene has a mass of thick white/gray hair all over her head with a bow on the top of her head. She has a cloth body with an embroidered face, a puffy dress with two complimentary fabrics, lace collar, matching bloomers, and a lace embroidered decoration on the front of her dress. Her mission in life is to always draw all the attention to herself.
