Princess Ballerina Clothespin Doll

Winner 2nd Place 1996 Long Island Fair Crafts Handmade Dolls & Toys Clothespin

This was my first clothespin doll, “The Princess Ballerina.”

As I like to recycle, “The Princess Ballerina” was made from an old clothespin found in my mother-in-law’s garage. Dress: old tissue paper wrapping, vintage ribbons and tulle netting chosen from a bag of vintage ribbons and materials purchased from a second-hand shop. Hair: cut from an old doll. Tiara: silver earring found on one of my walks. Stockings: I crocheted using thread leftover from another project.

After creating “The Princess Ballerina,” I was hooked on making clothespin dolls.

Clothespin dolls make wonderful Christmas ornaments (no hangers or strings required!).
