Meet Little Red Riding Hood & her tiny sidekick. Little Red is 6.5 inches, from head to toe. She is permanently attached to this box which is meant to be displayed on the wall. Little Red’s tiny companion is just over 2? tall. He can be removed from Red’s purse, although he finds this spot quite comfy. Red & her Wolf have been made of muslin & fiberfill. They’ve been painted & sanded a couple of times, giving them lovely, aged patinas. She’s been sealed with a combination of glossy & matte sealers. This little wolf has been sealed with a matte varnish with added UV filter.
Little Red’s face has been painted with a variety of media. Her nose & bottom lip have been needle-sculpted by hand giving her a perfect little pout just like my larger dollies. Her hands have been needle-sculpted as well. She sports tan painted gloves. She also sports painted brown boots with tan socks & red, detailed laces.
Little Red’s blouse is made of white muslin. It features hand-gathered sleeves & hand-stitching around the neckline and back. It is finished off with a vintage button. Red’s skirt & hooded cape have been made from two 100% cotton prints. Red’s skirt features hand-stitching along the hem. Red’s tiny purse has been constructed from brown wool. It has a braided, embroidery thread strap which is not removable.
Red’s little home is full of charm! It is 4? deep & has a diameter of 7.5?. I have decoupaged the box with various vintage papers, including illustrations of various woodland creatures & types of leaves. All vintage papers were treated with acid neutralizer to prevent deterioration over time. A tiny forest has been painted inside Red’s box. “Little Red” has been hand-painted on the lid surrounded by hand-painted lace. The inside of the lid features various collage pieces, significant to the story of Little Red Riding Hood. A hemp string is attached to the back of the box, so that this piece may be displayed on the wall. The lid can be placed on the box or displayed alongside Alice, although no hanger is attached to the lid.
Little Red’s hair is 100% light brown mohair. It has been applied with light glue for extra security & needle-felting. Little Red Riding Hood is available on eBay. She will end May 10th at 9:15 PM EST. Click here to view or bid.
