Lynette and primitive Easter Lamb.

LynetteTorso2 This sweet little gal with her very own pet is Lynette. Like all my dolls, Lynette & her lamb are my original designs and are guaranteed one of a kind art! She is 30" tall. Her sweet pet is 9.5" tall & 12.5 inches wide. Both dolls have been made of muslin & stuffed with fiberfill. Lynette’s lower torso has been rag-stuffed & bean filled in order to weight her little bottom. Both dolls have been hand-painted & sanded, top to bottom many, many times. Lynette has been treated to a series of paint washes, giving her a deeply aged patina. Her arms are lightly wired.

Lynette’s sweet face has been needle-sculpted by hand, (nose & lip), 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 needle sculpted fingers. Her lamb has been painted & highly detailed with the same media as Lynette. Both dolls have been sealed top to bottom with a combination of glossy & matte acrylic sealer.

LynetteLambFull

This little lamb was constructed from eight separate pieces. All legs have been attached with several strands of heavy duty button thread. They can be slightly posed. I’ve needle-felted this lamb entirely with raw, clean wool. (Quite a time-consuming process!!) She is as pretty on all sides as she is from the front. She can sit on her own as well relax in Lynette’s lap.

Lynette sports taupe painted socks & painted boots modeled after a pair of antique baby shoes. They are highly detailed & sanded in just the right places, adding to their aged appearance.

Lynette’s apron dress is made of a 100% cotton, pink polka dot print & a super cute 100% cotton alphabet print by Moda. (I’m in LOVE with both of these fabrics!) Her blouse has been made of white muslin & features sleeves, hand-gathered at the elbow, & a vintage mother of pearl button at the collar (which is edged in pretty, pink stitches). Lynette’s skirt & blouse feature tons of hand-stitching! All visible hems have been hand-stitched (skirt, sleeves, collar). The back of Lynette’s blouse also features hand-stitching. Her clothing has been treated to a coffee and lavender bud bath for an aged appearance. All pieces have been hand-washed & pressed with linen water.

Lynette’s hair is 100% ‘carrot’ mohair. It is not nearly as stark as shown in these photographs. The color is truer to the picture on the far right, above. It was lightly glued then carefully needle-felted to her head. I’ve styled Lynette’s hair into low messy buns.

Lynette & her little lamb (in my mind, her name is Aggie!) are available on eBay. They will end Sunday night Feb. 17th at 9:15 EST. Here’s the clicker if you want to view or bid!
