Carved from square basswood dowels,
with a real hickory nut for the head.
Elastic jointed.


"(her head was)...a hickory nut that had grown with an especially sharp and pointed nose.
Her eyes and mouth were inked on.
Her body was an apple-wood twig formed like a body...
To this body Miss HIckory's nut head was glued."--page 9, Miss Hickory, by Carolyn Sherwin Bailey


"She wore a blue-and-white checked gingham
dress."-page 9, Miss Hickory, by Carolyn Sherwin Bailey

 


"A white cap with ruffles was tied in a smart bow beneath
her chin."-page 9, Miss Hickory, by Carolyn Sherwin Bailey

 

I've made two more!
