April Showers Bring May Flowers!

AprilMayHeadToToe

Meet sweet April May. April May was inspired by the above saying. She stands 17″ tall from the tip of her “rain”-soaked umbrella to her base. April is 15″ tall from the top of her head to her base.  She’s been made in the style of a stump doll. (She has no legs.) She’s been made of muslin & is stuffed with fiberfill. Her base is rag-stuffed & lightly weighted so that she stands nicely. April May 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. Her arms are button jointed.

AprilMayFace AprilMayHand AprilMayFabric

April’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 & a beautiful little pout. She has needle-sculpted fingers as well. April’s skirt is fashioned from 100% cotton in a sweet polka dot print. Her muslin blouse is accented with a vintage, mother of pearl button. The hem of April’s dress features hand-stitching as does her blouse. There is hand-stitching along the neckline, sleeves & back.

AprilMayFlowers

Aren’t these little girls sweet? Each flower stands approx. 6″ tall. They’ve been made of muslin & fiberfill & are hand-painted.  They are lightly weighted. Each petal has been attached with hand-stitching.

AprilMayRainDrop AprilMayUmbrella

April’s wire & fabric umbrella features lots of hand-stitching as well. It’s been painted & aged. Paperclay rain drops are attached with invisible filament. A swarovski crystal accompanies each raindrop adding just the right bit of sparkle. April’s umbrella is attached to her hand with rusty wire. It is sewn to her blouse as well & is not removable.

AprilMayTorso

April’s red hair is 100% mohair. It’s been applied with light glue & needle-felting. It is pulled to the side & secured with a taupe grosgrain ribbon.
