Raggedy Catrina Dolls

So I was looking for some crafty items to sell at craft fairs and the like, and plushies always seem like a good idea... Not sure why, but I was inspired to make some Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) rag dolls... or Raggety Catrina, as I'm calling them. 

Only... didn't work out so well, since I hand-painted, hand-embroidered and hand-sewed them... taking up innumerable hours of my time, and meaning I will never even make minimum wage off from them by selling them at even a price that seems too high to sell.

But, I like the way they turned out...


  1. I like them too! And how awesome to meet someone else who spends so much time on their creations they end up paying themselves $1/hour. :)

  2. Adorable. You have to view creations like these as labors of love. You'll never get back what you put into them unless you treat and price them as the art they are. I respect your skills, buddy.

  3. Those dolls are maaaad detailed; they even show in the photos. I have missed your coolness while I was off from blogging. I hope you are doing well.

  4. You must really be a little crazy to do so much details and embroidery on the dolls! The look so sweet, perfect for the Day of the Dead!
