Jack and the Beanstalk

UP NEXT….. I started making dolls in 2003 and like all doll makers, you get obsessed and want to make everything in sight. I started this class by Janet Clark back in 2006. I don’t know if the class is still available after all this time, but maybe Janet still has it kicking around on her computer ??

I got as far as making his head and clothes, and tracing out the body parts, when as usual distraction kicked in. I packed his head, body fabric, clothing and chicken eggs in a trunk with a promise to revisit him and make him into a proper little boy. What are we at now??? 2018. And yet, I actually did go back and deal with his little self all in pieces. ;o~

Here he is on his way down from the giants house, along with the giants chicken that lays golden eggs. This is the story if you have forgotten it or never knew it. BEANSTALK  I love this doll, he is really such a cute little boy. Enjoy, ;o)



I love using these pieces of stump, having a wood pile can be a great asset when you want to make out of the ordinary doll bases. A little green moss combined with Spanish moss and a nest made of twigs gently hold those precious golden eggs.


Jacks shirt and trousers are made with cotton, everything else including the bean leaves is non woven felt. The cord is made from fabric strips that are folded and you just zig zag down the center. I loved making the leaves. There were two sizes of them, I just used the smaller ones. The large size is about 1/3rd larger. The doll is 23” tall.


His hair is faux animal fur and I used plastic eyes.
