Marigold - A Hand Embroidered Goldcrest Folk Art Rag Doll

Marigold - A Hand Embroidered Goldcrest Folk Art Rag Doll
Love this


This is Marigold, she is a hand embroidered Goldcrest rag doll. I use no paint to delineate the pattern but work freehand embroidery onto self colour cloth to make the plumage both on the front and the back of the doll. Marigold is dressed in a pretty olive green patterned cotton lawn from Liberty called Garden Trail with coordinating silk underskirt and knickers with a final lace underskirt to finish. She has stripy legs and little leather shoes. Her dress is finished with buttons and ribbon and she carries a little lavender sachet that is also embroidered. She has a little brass ring to her back so she can hang.

She stands just eight inches tall, a little smaller than her sister birds as Goldcrests are the UK's smallest bird I reduced her pattern by ten percent.

She is, as are all my girls, warm and companiable with a touch of English whimsy. I hope she makes you smile.


Her name is Marigold as the local name for Goldcrests is Marigold Finches, they are also known as Woodcock Pilots and I have no idea why!

She is dressed in a Liberty Lawn called A Garden Trail from the 2016 Collection A Garden of Dreams inspirded by Robert Louis Stevenson's book ‘A Child’s Garden of Verses’.
