Homespun Dolls Welcome

Hello Welcome to HomespunDolls blog page. I am a self taught doll artist who creates fantasy art dolls. All of my little ones live and work in a little piece of my backyard called Elftown. During their creation they all have their own personal story that is told just for them. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do making them.
You can follow me on Twitter @HomespunDolls and Facebook HomespunDolls.

Sour Little Agatha

Sour little Agatha in her clothes of black and gray
She was never accused of running out to play
Never did her mouth turn up in a smile of happiness and joy
Even when she caught the eye of a blue-eyed handsome boy

"She'll always be a spinster" talked the ladies down the way
"For she'll never catch a husband with her smile turned down all day.

The Blue-eyed boy saw through her frown the beauty of her heart
One day he asked her to go for a ride in his fancy pony cart

That summer there was a celebration in the month of May
Sour little Agatha wore white on her wedding day

Agathas head and body and hair are needlefelted with wool. Her arms and legs are sculpted from polymer clay. Her clothes, hat, bag and shoes are handsewn and handmade. Her stockings are painted.


  1. How cool is she !?! I Love her!

    She's almost as sweet as Bernandine the Brat.

  2. Thanks Jeanne, love making these dolls
