"The Calling of the Witches" Primitive Witch e-pattern
KentuckyPrimitives folk artist
Victoria Lynn
Simple Primitives done in the tradition of old


The time has come
For the Witches dance
And the spooks from far and near
Will gather and make merry
For Halloween is here

This is an extremely, extremely old looking primitive witch doll.  This doll can be placed on a pedestal, or you can make her have stick legs instead.

The pattern includes the face transfer, and also includes the poem on her chest.

This is a simple doll, yet is so so primitive.  It is like the primitives from years past when tattered rags made beautiful dolls.

When completed as shown with a pedestal, she is approximately 27" tall.  When not on a pedestal, she is 22" in length.  As always, there will be a download link for the poem as well.

This pattern cannot be altered in any way.  You may substitute stick arms or legs, and you do not have to use the poem.  You can leave her plain or add an old gauze apron or dress to her if desired.

God bless you.
