I learned to sew from my mother when she helped me with my 4-H projects.
I’ve been teaching my two oldest granddaughters to sew and recently we each made a doll like this from an old style pattern. Since I still have my first sewing scissors and some old notions of my mom’s, I decided to put my doll and the sewing supplies together into a still life. So, first I made the doll and clothes, and then painted the objects. Double the fun!
