New Shoes is an original doll envisioned, designed, stitched, stuffed and embellished by Charlie Patricolo.  Charlie lives and works in beautiful western North Carolina, near the John C. Campbell Folk School.  She also teaches and demonstrates her craft at various venues–from Florida to Michigan.  Charlie is overflowing with ideas (and colorful yarns and fabric and notions…), and it’s hard to look at her dolls and not feel her effervescence coming through. 

What the world needs is more smiles! This lovely doll is dressed in lavender, and has a small ribbon on the back of her neck so she can hang on your wall as a gentle reminder. Her tag reads: “Like when you were a kid and someone whispered something to you and said, ‘Pass it on.’ How about we start a Chain of Smiles. It starts here – SMILE to everyone you see today. SOMEONE will PASS IT ON!”  Each doll in this series is adorned in fabrics hand-painted by Charlie.

This doll is built to hang or lean on a wall.

Approximately 15 inches from colorful hair to her tippy-toes.

Artist statement included.
