My most recent project is the pioneer doll vacuum cover. This is 100% handsewn. No sewing machine, no serger. Just wanted to create something with a simple needle and thread - which I find very relaxing.
Online at www.ozcrafts.com/country04.html you'll find several varieties of doll vacuum covers to choose from. The pattern I had used is Sweet Suzanne. Not wanting to paint her face, I decided to go with the primitive look and leave it at that.
