PRINTED CATS WITH GW SPECIAL
These printed cats are done for me by the
yard by Jocelyn Benzaia, a friend and customer. But since I like
mine to look as old as a small collection I had but which has
now disintegrated due to real age and exposure to light (I used
to use them as photo props until they fell apart), I age these
two sizes and you would never know they weren't over 100 years
old like the originals and stuff them with real wool. These will
last for another hundred years as props in your doll setting
or use the small size as an accessory to larger dolls (16-18").
Small is 3" tall $24 Add
Large size is 5" tall $28 Add
I have a small collection of antique primitive cloth animals,
but because they are rare, I only have a few - two dogs,
two cats, a lamb and one questionable species (dog or rabbit),
but charming nonetheless and my favorite one. There is something
so straight-to-the-heart about these sweet playthings, often
sewn from old coating or other scraps and stuffed with rags.
Like primitive dolls whose shapes are often pared down to
the essentials (keeping in mind that most of these dear things
were not made with patterns), it is this naive look that
appeals. Most often one finds them in old dirty whites or
browns as these coarser weaves were common, so most of mine
will also be in these grungy tones. The patterns will inspire
you to make them in many types of fabrics, one more endearing
than the next. The animals are divided up into two patterns
as well as kits for each one and completely finished.
