Dolls to hang around with

All of this group are wall-hanging dolls. Shirley, Suzanne, and Sandra are a Judy Skeel design (Wally Mamas). They are 16 in. tall. I thought of them as the three muses. Shirley has been sold. They have a loop on the back, for hanging.

Judy and Jackie also have loops for hanging, though they are shown here with a stand (not included). They are 16 inches, design (I-Love-NY) by Karen Cunagin. Judi is made of knit dollskin fabric with satin tights, and Jackie is muslin. Both have painted shoes. Slightly needle-sculpted faces with painted features. Novelty yarn hair, sequin costume trims.

The six-inch ornament dolls which I called 'Sisters', are Nancy Palomino's "Personality Pins", but I made them up with loops for hanging instead of pinbacks. Only a couple of these left, but I will eventually make some more. Be careful what you leave hanging around, I might make something out of it.
Tyla and Tyona, and Tiffany are re-cycled men's ties, lightly stuffed, with wired arms and hands. Tiffany has glass bead fringe at bottom and shoulders. Lightly needlesculpted, painted features on cotton muslin heads. Tyla and her mama Tyona are a set, and have chenile yarn hair, and Tiffany's is burgundy-dyed angora wool. They are about 17 inches tall, have loops for hanging.
