Maybell, a Pretty Spring Butterfly


Doesn’t this pretty girl remind you that spring is JUST around the corner? Meet Maybell. Maybell is 14″ from the top of her head to her toes & has a wingspan measuring 12.5 inches. She has been made of muslin & is stuffed with fiberfill. She’s been hand-painted & sanded a couple of times, giving her a lovely, aged patina. Maybell’s been sealed so that she may be lightly dusted after display. She comes with an embroidery thread loop attached making her suitable for hanging.


Maybell’s sweet 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 & a beautiful little pout. She has needle-sculpted hands as well & wears painted boots with tan socks & detailed, turquoise laces.

Maybell’s skirt is constructed from nubby, taupe osnaburg. It has such great texture! The hem is hand-stitched.  Maybell’s blouse is sewn from white muslin & features hand-stitching at the neckline, sleeves & back. A vintage, grey, mother of pearl button adorns the neckline.


Maybell’s hand-painted, muslin wings are attached by vintage mother of pearl button, have been machine-quilted & are heavily aged.

Her curly black hair is 100% mohair. It has been applied with light glue for extra security & needle-felting.
