Merrilee–an Angelic Handmade Christmas Ornament


I’d like to introduce you to Merrilee. This wee gal measures 10.5 inches tall from tip of wing to toe. She has a wingspan of 7 inches. Merrilee’s been made of muslin & stuffed with fiberfill. She’s been hand-painted & sanded a couple of times, giving her a lovely, aged patina. I’ve sealed her with a combination of glossy & matte sealers so that she may be lightly dusted after display. She has an embroidery thread loop attached, so she can hang beautifully from your Christmas tree. She would also look lovely displayed year round & may sit (with assistance).

Merrilee’s face has been painted with a variety of media. Her nose & bottom lip have been needle-sculpted by hand just like my larger dollies. Her hands have been needle-sculpted as well. She sports brown painted gloves & brown boots with tan socks & red laces.

Merrilee’s blouse is made of white muslin. It features hand-gathered sleeves & hand-stitching around the neckline and back. It is finished off with tiny, pearl buttons at the neckline. Her skirt is made of 100% cotton. This is a pretty spa blue, floral print. The hem is hand-stitched.


Merrilee’s wings have been made from muslin & cotton batting. They’ve been machine-quilted, painted & aged & have been dusted with beautiful, sparkly vintage-style glass glitter. This little girl will shimmer on your Christmas tree! Merrilee’s wings have been attached with a vintage, mother of pearl button & embroidery thread.

Her golden brown hair is 100% mohair. It has been applied with light glue for extra security & needle-felting. It is pulled loosely to the side.

This little one is currently available on Ebay & will end Sunday, Aug. 16th. Click here to bring her to your home for the holidays!
