"The Calling of the Witches" Primitive Witch Doll 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 one face transfer, and also includes a download link to print your own (to make more than one doll).

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 has very detailed instructions.  This pattern also includes wonderful prim tips.   You can sell these on eBay, craft shows, etc.  I would appreciate credit for the pattern design.  The pattern itself may not be resold.  Your basic sewing skills are all that's needed!

This is for the pattern only.  You will receive the printed pattern by mail.  Pattern is Copyright 2001, Victoria Lynn, KentuckyPrimitives.

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.
