At 27 inches in length, head to feet,Â Sage makesÂ quite a statement.
Sage is a 100% handmade African-American rag doll, art doll. Her face is hand painted, her hair sewn in piece by piece. She can wear her hair down in dreadlocks or up in a headdress. Â The Queen’s inner layered garment is a dusty lavender polyester. Her outer flowing floral garment is sheer rayon of lavender, cream and sage. The flowers in her hands are real lavender that were dried then painted. SageÂ wears a pendant and gemstone around her neck.
Not only is she hand stitched and hand painted, but her clothing is handmade as well. I also made the pendant she’s wearing and painted the flowers she’s holding.
This is theÂ first doll I’ve ever created with dreadlocks. It was so fun. I created each dreadlock from soft, brushed yarn. They were thenÂ sewn in one at a time.Â It wasn’t as difficult as I thought it would be.
