The Story Behind We Can Do It! Women and How Our Women’s History Figures Are Made

At RosieCentral, we’re always looking for new products and ideas designed to help women inspire women. We created the We Can Do It! Women dolls and figures to empower women and girls with the examples and stories of strong women of America’s past and present.

We have some pretty remarkable women who have crossed barriers, crashed ceilings, fought for their rights and cleared the way for future women.

We Can Do It! Women honor their achievements and serve as a reminder that you can do it, too.

We make our We Can Do It! Women in versions that and sizes that are sold as ornaments, keychains, backpack charms, fridge magnets, sachets, wreaths and more. And we’re always adding new women to our collection…so we hope you’ll check back often on Amazon, Etsy and here on our RosieCentral website.

Research

It takes an inspirational life to become a We Can Do It! Woman. We research women’s stories and accomplishments. Once we vote to accept a woman into the We Can Do It! collection, we go to work researching uniforms, outfits and accessories for our figure.

We share all our notes and images with our artist, who creates an original illustration that captures the features, style and activities of our We Can Do It! Woman.

Once we have the artwork, we bring it into Cricut to print on special heat transfer paper and cut out the transfer. Then we transfer the image to fabric…and we’re ready to make a doll, ornament or sachet for you!

And it’s off to the sewing machine. Of course we leave a small opening to add the stuffing, first. And once sewn we cut around the image with pinking shears for that traditional look.

Stuff and Finish

Stuff and Finish

We have a few options when it’s time to stuff our We Can Do It! Women. Typically we use a non-allergenic poly fill. But we also offer sachets. Right now we have natural lavender and rose bud sachets, which are a lovely addition to closets and drawers. And we may start offering balsam for that fresh, outdoor scent. Then we stitch up the bottom, and we’re done…almost!

Package

Package

Both because we believe our We Can Do It! Women deserve it, and because so many choose to give our Women as gifts, we package our figures in a gift box…with little extras, such as a fun collar button and an informational card.

We even pair our figures with beautiful artisan soap…for a special gift.

We have plans for cards, inspirational posters, craft kits and wreathes. The possibilities are almost endless, and we look forward to providing our fans many options.
