Harvest on the Farm

"To those that work in acres, not in hours!"

Living in rural, prairie Canada, we are surrounded by farm and agricultural land. Many of our dearest friends, including us, make our living in this industry.

So I jumped at the chance to release the Cow Doll sewing and embroidery machine patterns, and the brand new Doll Overall clothing patterns sewn up in the new Barn Quilts fabric by Tara Reed for Riley Blake Designs.

I love the neutrals and rich colors in this line. The denim tone on tone called Sister's Choice, has to be one of my favorite prints.

I decided to feature this print in the Cow Doll's Overalls. Isn't is just so cute! I couldn't resist using the patchwork prints to fussy cut and make actual "patches" for the dolls knees and a working pocket for his wheat!

I used the neutral animal print as the main print for the doll's dress. What a great color called parchment that really lets the accents of red shine. I even made a red felt flower that she tucked behind her ear. What a sweetie!

The Cow Dolls are both from the same pattern (they have optional horn buds, detailed hooves, snout and more). I always get requests from farm family and friends who want their own Cow Doll for the holiday season. So today, I am excited to share that the patterns are now available and YOU can create your very own Cow Doll yourself. YAY! If you have never made a Modern Rag Doll before, I am happy to teach you how. All you need is a sewing machine and beginner level sewing skills. I walk you through each step of the process in the fully illustrated, step by step pattern and share tips and tricks on our FREE Educational Inspired Doll Making Facebook Group.
