Sugar Bag Skirted Primitive Annies using Antique Sugar Bags for Skirt Materials

Pin It
Above shows a closeup of one of the doll skirts made from these antique cotton sugar bags. The sugar bags used in this project were collected and saved by my grandmother...who passed these along to me. During the depression she used to bleach the print off them, and then make her undergarments from the wonderful cotton, because she couldn't afford to buy manufactured panties, slips and bras.

Below are pictures of the finished Raggedy Annie dolls with their sugar bag skirts.:)
Check my ETSY SHOPPE to purchase completed dolls in this series.

I'm currently working on another Raggedy Annie Series - Pinwheel Annies which should be ready to share soon.:) So check back tomorrrow for more pictures.:)
