Altered Party

A couple years ago I bought some little rag "church dolls" to photograph for a blog banner that I was creating for someone. I don't remember the website that I bought them from (if they're yours, please email me and I'll add your link in the post) but I came across them again in my overflowing storage area recently and thought they might make a fun project for the Altered Party.

I took some inspiration from my most favorite designer. Have you seen the Magnolia Pearl dolls?? Truly, truly unique pieces of art!

I used some old lace & crochet bits to make little vests and skirts for the tiny 6" dolls.
Talk about alterations!
A vintage cameo earring made for a perfect brooch.
And some crinkle ribbon to make their hair as crazy as my own wild curls.

Overall, it was a fun project!
What are you repurposing or upcycling these days?

Come on over and show us! Or just take a moment to see what everyone else is altering.


  1. These are soo darling! Love their curly hair, you did a wonderful job!

  5. I think your dolls are so much cuter!

  6. they're just adorable.....loving their name,of course. You are so talented!!!!

  7. Your dolls are just adorable!! And I've seen the MP's dolls at her site-aren't they just the cutest?

    Thanks for sharing~

  8. Your little altered dolls are just adorable.....I love them....You have inspired me today to play with some dolls.

  9. Those little dolls look like they would fit in any little girls (or big girls) well loved collection.

  10. Well, if I actually get around to working on it, I have a Shabby Chic fitted sheet that has a couple of small holes in it. I could patch up the holes...but I've got another sheet in perfect I'll use that on my bed. I'll take the fitted sh eet with the wholes and cut panels and add lace trim, so I can have cute vintage-looking shelf liners. That's the plan anyway!!!! :) :) :) Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

  11. How Adorable ~ Love the Faces, the hair & of course the Fabulous Altered Clothing.....

  12. Those are absolutely darling Polly!

    Hope you are having a great weekend.


  13. How funny that you should post about reusing! I was just thinking of making some cute long scarves out of some of the fabrics from my mother's wardrobe that I just haven't been able to bear the thought of giving away. LOVE those little dolls. I'm always searching for ways to reuse tiny bits of lace and such. TOO CUTE!

  14. Love the cute rag dolls --so sweet Polly (:)

  16. I still have to check out MPs site, but they can not be any cuter than yours.


Something worth sharing...
