Whoa, Nellie!

Sweet Nellie is a cowgirl at heart ... and she really wants a pony! Nellie measures 29" BIG. Made from aged muslin, she features button eyes, a painted nose, and a stitched mouth. Her frock features a whimsical cowboy print bodice and a red bandana print skirt. It is embellished with red rick-rack and a vintage red button. I pinned an antique Deputy toy star badge to her bodice. Nellie wanted chaps, so her momma sewed faux suede fringe to the bottom of her muslin pantaloons! 
The vintage blue ribbon bow tied in her red cotton hair probably won't last very long { Nellie's a bit of a tomboy, you know }! Her raggedy dolly, Lulu Belle, wears a dress that is similar to Nellie's except the skirt is a coordinating red and white homespun ticking stripe. Lulu Belle's frock features vintage rick-rack, a vintage red button...and a tiny vintage metal toy gun attached at her waistline with blue ribbon. She's a cowgirl, too ... afterall! Yee-haw!
