Vintage Paper Doll for Thanksgiving

Here is a printable paper doll PDF, courtesy of the ever-charming GraphicsFairy. This holiday-themed toy is taken from a vintage early 1900s newspaper. GraphicsFairy suggests printing this out twice, once with cardstock, so that the doll is on a firmer paper and once with regular paper, for the outfits. Sigh! I long to dress as a be-feathered turkey next week…gobble, gobble, gobble.

Vintage Paper Doll Linen


Some of us do not feel the need to grow out of playing with paper dolls (you know who you are!) Here is a new linen home decorating fabric at Britex scattered with vintage paper dolls and their outfits. From officious nurses, to playful ocean swimmers, to be-smocked artists…..these paper dolls are handsomely clothed. This print is oversized, and the children are 18” and 12” tall. I can picture this as lovely sweeping bed canopy curtains! This fabric is printed on natural 100% linen, is 55” wide, $59.99 a yard, and can be found on Britex Fabric’s 2nd floor.
