Primitive Folk Art Mammy Doll

My first Mammy Doll, here she is.  She is inspired by a Mammy Doll crafted in 1850, I saw a picture in one of my prim decorating books and thought I'd try my hand at making one.

The Mammy that I patterned her after had such wonderful character, she had leather arms and legs with a fabric body and head.

This Mammy is my rendition of her.  My Mammy is a fabric body doll, her arms & legs have been aged to have a leather look about them. She is partially rag stuffed.  I made her dress from aged fabrics & did some hand stitchin' on her clothes. Found some old rings in my button box for earrings.

Mammy is 19" tall
