Years ago, I did a range called "String Beings" long, tall skiny gollies, dollies and bears. These appealing fellows sold very well and had a wooden body, feet and hands and their arms and legs were string. They were dressed in cotton fabrics and embellishments and could sit on a shelf or hang on the wall. Recently I came across three unfinished bodies, I think I had kept these as samples incase I decided to re-do the range.
Well here is the first one, Lanky Larry -a golly. Now to dress and finish the dolly and bear.
