Shari Lutz
From The Attic

We've knew Shari Lutz for a long time. She was a well known artist and wonderful doll designer. We took her "Lavinia Mae" doll class at "Wee Folk of Cloth" in Baltimore and just fell in love with all her work.

We were thrilled when Shari called to say that she had started publishing doll patterns under the name "From the Attic". Of course we wanted to get them for the Homespun Peddler site.

In 1998 Shari was interviewed by Maria Pahls for the seed pod newsletter. You need to read that interview to get a real flavor of what Shari's all about. But let us quote her opening answer right here.
"I started over 12 years ago making Father Christmas dolls, hand sculpting the face, hands and boots, and making a lot of my own toys. In addition, I enjoy haunting flea markets, antique malls, and thrift stores for fabrics, trims,and laces, or toys, antique children's books.

What started out as a favor to a friend, has grown into a full time business for me. I find a lot of joy in creating my dolls, and especially selling to collectors who have followed my work for all these years."
Today Homespun Peddler is more of a hobby. We still have a large collection of patterns from the 1990's, and there's a demand for many of those old numbers. You'll find our remaining collection of "From the Attic" patterns below this section. Scroll down to see what we have.
All patterns © Shari Lutz
You have permission to make up to 25 dolls from each pattern for your own personal use or for sale at local craft shows or boutiques. No mass production, wholesale distribution, internet or catalog sales allowed. Shari Lutz retains all rights to the design. You are also requested to not copy any pattern, but instead that you recommend that your friends purchase patterns for themselves. Thanks you and we hope you have fun making these dolls which Shari created with love.
