Red .....White.... and Blue!


This Annie has it all...that is.... all American!
You can almost her chant "U.S.A. U.S.A."
This doll is an extreme primitive in style.  She is prim perfect!
Annie measures  about 30 inches.
Made of osnaburg, french cotton toile and country prints of blue. Laced edged pantaloons draw your eye to her painted red striped stockings.  Bells adorn her shoes. The crown is made of gold painted artist canvas.
The torch is painted muslin attached to textile bobbin.
Annie's  U.S.A. sash is hand painted.  
 It is pinned with a Teddy Roosevelt political button.
Necklace is of rusted wire and star, with of course 1776.
Her eyes and mouth are hand embroidered.  Her nose is the traditional Annie  style of red wool.  An old red shade  of hair was used.  Her hair is mussed for effect.  She will not disappoint the Annie collector nor the Americana lover.
If you are looking for a doll that has the time forgotten look...  discovered in Grandma's attic.. this is the one for you!
Miss Liberty Annie was created from a pattern by Sew Prim. 
She will come to you signed and dated by
Carol Yapel of Butternut Creek Folk Art.
