Novi Stars OC sketch paper doll

So sometimes I do little doodle paper dolls and never do much with them.  The above is a paper doll of a Novi Star doll based on designs I sketched out forever ago.  I changed a hair style to make it easier to put on the doll.
Originally I was going to color this and do more fashions, but I think it's just another project I'll never finish.

These two sheets are advertisement for Miss Sunbeam of Sunbeam bread and also Simplicity patterns.  This is set No.1 and Set No.2 which is in black and white.  I believe there are more sets.  These are from the 1950s but I don't know much more about them.

Tiny Tots

This uncut book is called Tiny Tots Paper Dolls with Red Flocked Clothing.  The red parts of the outfits are 'fuzzy'.  This is a Whitman set from 1967.  The dolls and outfits are punch-out, so no scissors are needed.  There are two cute dolls, Cathy and Carolyn.  And 6 sheets of outfits.  The cover art and inside of the cover/pocket for the clothes is adorably illustrated.  The dolls, I believe, can share the outfits.

This newspaper sheet is a black and white paper doll named Muriel.  She has two outfits.  The newspaper has discolored, so now the page is more yellow.  This doll is by an artist named Laura Brock, whom I have a few paper dolls from and I will post later.  This is dated 1934 but I don't know the month.  I believe these are from the Seattle Star newspaper.

Paper Dolls

This set compliments the set I posted yesterday. It doesn't have the most imaginative title, it's simply called "Paper Dolls" and features the other two doll bases from the original American Beauties set.   The two dolls are named Marie and Eleanor.  This set is also by Rueben Lilja Co. and was published in 1951.  The book has four pages of clothing, two for each doll.

American Beauties Paper Dolls

Ruth and Elizabeth

This is a set by Reuben H. Lilja Co. published in 1951.  It is a reprint of an earlier set of the same name that had four different dolls (I have a second reprint I will post next with the other two dolls).  This set has 4 dolls, but they are the same on the front and back named Ruth and Elizabeth. It has four page of outfits, two pages for each doll. Lilja co has made some of my favorite sets, I love the clothing and the tabs and the small illustrations in the book.

14 Good Little Dolls with cloth like dresses

This uncut paper doll book features a whopping 14 dolls of boys, girls and babies.  This set is by the artist Emma McKean.  There is 4 pages of clothing, not a lot for so many dolls.  It features clothing for school, play, and even cleaning. The dolls are all different sizes.  This was published by Saalfield in 1941.  i'm not sure what the set means by 'cloth-like' clothing, the paper feels a bit different then standard but doesn't really feel like cloth. I was almost expecting flocking, which is included in sets sometimes.
