“Nancy Dew Drop”, 10” Country Girl Doll E-Pattern - The Egg Muff Series - Pattern Category - Skill Level - Beginner
"Nancy Dew Drop" is one of the members of the "Egg Muff Series" of cloth dolls. They are a fun loving group of dolls that love to sneak around and maybe, every once in awhile, drop in unexpectedly. You might find then peaking around a corner, peaking over the windowsill, peaking through a keyhole in a door, or sneaking into your room. You just never know. Sometimes you might just catch a glimpse of their eyes and hair as they try to sneak a peak. If you listen carefully, you might even hear them laughing, even chuckling away. Sometimes you might even catch them doing a little jig. You just never know what they may do. They love to laugh. They love to have fun. But, most of all they love to play hide and peak! No, not hide and seek! Hide and peak!
"Nancy Dew Drop" is a 10" squared bottomed self-standing country and cottage cloth doll. She has a muslin body and embroidered face with black and white satin stitched eyes, blue eye shadow, and a raised nose. Her eyebrows are embroidered as are her eyelashes. Nancy has a mass of gold and white combination yarn hair on the very top of her head with the back and sides of her head left bald. Her dress is lace trimmed along the bottom hem edge and along the neck edge and is adorned with a fabric bow in the back. Her apron is fringed and tied around what could be considered her waistline.
Nancy Dew Drop is actually the most well behaved of the Egg Muffs and, generally, the most level headed. Sometimes, even Nancy lets the fun get the better of her and you might just hear her giggling in the background. Just listen for a sweet "tee-hee-hee" and that will be Nancy Dew Drop.
