Mia, a Valentine’s Day Butterfly


Meet Mia. Mia is a free standing doll measuring 16″ from the top of her head to her base. This lovely butterfly has no legs & has been made in the style of a stump doll. Mia has been made of muslin & is stuffed with fiberfill. Her base is rag-stuffed & lightly weighted for stability. Mia has been hand-painted & sanded a couple of times, giving her a lovely, aged patina. She’s been sealed so that she may be lightly dusted after display.


Mia’s face has been painted with a variety of media. Her nose & bottom lip have been needle-sculpted by hand, giving her face a great bit of dimension & beautiful little pout. Mia has needle-sculpted hands as well. Her hand-painted, muslin wings, which are attached by vintage mother of pearl button, have been machine-quilted.

I just love the soft colors of Mia’s dress. It features two 100% cotton prints in shades of in shades of taupe & pink. The hem is hand-stitched with contrasting brown thread. Mia’s blouse is sewn from taupe osnaburg & features hand-stitching at the neckline, sleeves & back. A vintage, grey, mother of pearl button adorns the neckline.

Mia’s chocolate brown hair is 100% mohair. It has been applied with light glue for extra security & needle-felting.
