1910 Reunion Baby Carriage and baby

This is the baby carriage taught at the Cleveland Convention in 2011 by Pat Boldt.  I did not take the class but got an extra kit from her.  Sometime during the year part of the instructions got separated from the kit, and I had to fudge the weaving a little.  But I think it turned out pretty nice.  I have made other wicker pieces out of waxed linen before so I knew how to make it work.   I decided to paint it brown instead of leaving it white.   The baby I made in her other class and it was very easy and fun to make.  Pat is a doll maker and also a dealer at most of the shows.  You can go on her web site online.  Google- Pat Boldt and it will come up.  I think this will be a great addition to the reunion scene.
