A primitive Easter Rabbit & her Posy

TillyHeadtoToe I’m so happy to introduce to you, Tilly. Like all my dolls, she is my original design and is guaranteed one of a kind art! I’ve used no patterns to create her or her clothing. She is a whopping 31″ tall. She has been made of muslin & stuffed with fiberfill. I’ve stuffed Tilly’s lower torso with beans & rags in order to weight her little bottom. I’ve hand-painted & sanded her top to bottom many, many times. Tilly has been stained for an ‘oh so vintage’ appearance. Her arms are lightly wired.

Tilly’s sweet face has been needle-sculpted by hand, (nose), and hand-painted. Her face is heavily detailed! She has been painted with premium acrylic paints and shaded & highlighted heavily with oil pastels, artist pencils & acrylic paint. She has been sealed top to bottom with glossy acrylic sealer so that you may dust her lightly after display & keep her for a lifetime.

Tilly’s fingers have been needle-sculpted by hand. She is wearing white painted gloves (elbow length!) & brown boots with pretty smoky purple socks, matching the hydrangea she carries, perfectly. Tilly’s shoes have been painted & heavily detailed, right down to the laces!

Tilly’s apron dress is made of a 100% cotton, brown, floral print. Her blouse has been made out of white muslin & features hand-gathered sleeves & a vintage button. Tilly’s skirt & blouse feature tons of hand-stitching! All visible hems have been hand-stitched (skirt, sleeves & collar). Her clothing has been treated to a coffee and lavender bud bath for a semi-grubby, aged appearance. All pieces have been hand-washed & pressed with linen water.

Tilly carries a dried hydrangea bouquet, surely a sweet gift for someone! This dried hydrangea features delicate shades of smoky purple, sage & light blue. The stem has been wired & wrapped with florists’ tape & then wrapped in burlap. The stem also features a midori satin ribbon band, chocolate in color, topped off with a raffia bow — the perfect combination of frilly & rugged.

Tilly makes her eBay debut tonight at 9:15 PM. She will end Feb. 10th at 9:15 PM. Click here to view or bid! (Link will not work until she is available on eBay at 9:15.)

    Thank you so much. I completely LOVE dried hydrangeas. They’re scattered all over my house. I thought one would make a sweet little posy for Tilly.
