Once Upon a Time - The Old Latin Witch~Pattern
Kentucky Primitives folk artist

Simple Primitives done in the tradition of old


This is the Latin Witch.  She is from the old world country.

This is an extremely primitive old witch.  She is very old.  She has some wrinkling around her eyes, and on her face and her nose is very wrinkly and withered, and so is her chin.

This is just a wonderful and simple display for Halloween,

Her hair is thinning, long and dangly.  She also has a wisp of hair hanging over her forehead, and a long black braid hanging down the side of her face.

She measures approximately 20" tall when completed as shown.  She can be made a simple primitive witch.  You do not have to make them a certain ethnicity.

She is the scary witch of the three.

Her mouth is pinned together by a rusty safety pin.

Her hat is old and withered too.

If you wish you can put the mark "LAMIA" on the side of her face, which is Latin for "Witch".  Some of the townspeople have seen her mark.

Underneath the brim of her hat reveals when she became a witch.  It is written in Latin "Quondam Super A Vicis 1537", which means "Once upon a time 1537".  (This is optional).

Above is a picture of all three "Witches of the World" Once Upon a Time 1537.  This pattern is for the first witch.

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.  You may not mass produce or wholesale dolls you make from my patterns.  Your basic sewing skills are all that's needed!
