Book 903 - Jean Greenhowe's Bazzar Knits
This booklet is absolutely packed with over forty imaginative novelties for charity fund-raising and gifts for family and friends. The centre piece in Bazaar Knits is Jean's superb Pedlar Doll. During the late 18th and early 19th centuries pedlars travelled the countryside selling their wares and it became a popular pastime to make pedlar dolls. These could be constructed from various materials - some were even made with dried apple heads. These old dolls have since become collectors' items and are often seen in museums. Jean's charming Pedlar Doll is unique because everything is knitted::: including her many wares. Why not make her for a charity raffle::: as a special gift or just for yourself. Perhaps your creation may prove to be a collectors' item of the future or an heirloom to treasure. The Pedlar Doll measures 29cm (11½in) in height to the top of her bonnet.
