Cecile & her Pink Rag Bunny.

CecileTorsoThis charming little lady is Cecile. And Cecile takes her favorite doll EVERYWHERE. Like all my dolls, Cecile & her sweet rabbit are my original designs and are guaranteed one of a kind art! She is 27" tall while her rabbit is 17" tall. Cecile has been made of muslin & stuffed with fiberfill. Her lower torso has been rag-stuffed & bean filled in order to weight her little bottom. Cecile has been hand-painted & sanded, top to bottom many, many times. She has been treated to a series of paint washes, giving her a deeply aged patina. Cecile’s arms are lightly wired allowing her to hold her rabbit (rabbit does not sit on her own). Rabbit has been made from a super supple, Robert Kaufman, 100% cotton fabric. Her ears are lined with a sweet, 100% cotton, pink polka dot print.

Cecile’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. Her rag doll’s muzzle has been made from osnaburg & stitched on with invisible thread. Her pink little nose has been drawn with artist pencils. Her whiskers are heavy duty thread. Cecile has been sealed top to bottom with a combination of glossy & matte acrylic sealer so that she may be lightly dusted after display & kept a lifetime.

Both doll’s fingers (paws) have been needle-sculpted by hand. Cecile sports dark taupe painted gloves with painted white ruffles lining the edge. She also sports painted brown boots, with tons of painted straps & buttons & painted dark taupe socks with hand-painted white ruffles lining the edge.

 

CecileFace Cecile’s apron skirt is made from a celery green 100% cotton damask print from Moda featuring white bunnies!!! Her blouse is made from white muslin & features hand-gathered sleeves & a vintage green button at the collar. Rabbit’s dress is made from a 100% cotton pink striped print. These dresses feature tons of hand-stitching. All visible hems have been hand-stitched (dress & sleeves). There is decorative hand-stitching around her collar. All clothing has been treated to a coffee and lavender bud bath for a slightly aged appearance. All pieces have been hand-washed & pressed with linen water.

 

Rabbit’s dress is finished in the back with a vintage, white button. Brown buttons grace the front of both dresses.

 

Cecile’s hair is 100% ‘honey blonde’ mohair. It was lightly glued then carefully needle-felted to her head. I’ve styled Cecile’s hair into loose braids, then fashioned them into a low side pony.
