Ella, A Primitive SnowGirl Full of Sass & Charm

This little girl looks quite the priss with her ruby red lips & stylish wool hat! Meet Ella. Ella is my original design. She measures 16″ tall from the top of her head to the bottom of her feat. Ella has been made of muslin, stuffed with fiberfill & painted & sanded many times, giving her a lovely, aged patina. She has been sealed with a combination of matte & glossy sealers so that she may be beautifully preserved. Ella has a hemp loop attached to her back making her suitable for hanging or she may sit with assistance. Her knees are sewn through, making her a perfect shelf sitter. Ella’s arms are lightly wired allowing them to be gently posed.

Ella’s face has been painted with a variety of media. She has deep red lips & a dark orange nose. (More of a bittersweet, really.) Ella’s bottom lip has been needle-sculpted by hand. Her cheeks have been dusted with vintage-style glass glitter, giving her the perfect frosty twinkle.

Ella’s fingers have been needle-sculpted as well. She sports brown gloves. She also sports pretty brown boots complete with tan laces & dark taupe socks.

Ella’s apron dress has been made from two beautiful 100% cotton prints. The striped Moda print is done in shades of olive, rusty red & brown. The Marcus Brothers fabric is chocolate with cream polka dots. Ella’s blouse has been made of taupe osnaburg & features a vintage, mother of pearl button at the neckline. It also features puffy, hand-gathered sleeves. All exposed hems have been hand-stitched. There is also hand-stitching at the neckline of Ella’s blouse & along the back seam.

Ella’s hat has been constructed from 100% wool felt, which I shaped into a cute cloche style hat. The grosgrain ribbon has been hand-stitched to the hat with olive embroidery thread. It features a vintage mother of pearl button on the upturned side. The outer edge of Ella’s hat has been trimmed with pinking shears. Ella’s hat is not attached to her head. It is removable.


This little guy is such a cute traveling companion. He’s 5″ tall, has been constructed from muslin, stuffed with fiberfill & hand-painted, sanded & aged from head to toe. His neck, legs & arms have been needle-sculpted by hand. His little bag has been made from burlap, features vintage & new buttons & is looped around Ella’s arm with a chocolate ribbon handle. It can be removed if you wish to display it separately. (You might even want to use it as a Christmas ornament!) (Notice the drop down P.J.s!)
