Simmon, a Primitive Crenis Pechuelli Butterfly

SimmonsHeadtoToe This little lady is Simmon. She is my original design and is guaranteed one of a kind art! Simmon is 18" tall with a wingspan of 13". She has been made of muslin & stuffed with fiberfill & has been hand-painted & sanded, top to bottom many, many times. Simmon has been treated to a series of paint washes, making her look "oh so vintage". She has a hemp a loop attached to her back for hanging or she can sit, if propped, should you choose to display her in that fashion.

Simmon’s face has been needle-sculpted by hand and hand-painted. Her bottom lip ‘pouts’ while her top lip is simply painted. She is heavily detailed & features big light brown eyes, rosy cheeks, peachy lips & detailed eyebrows. She has been painted with various mediums. Simmon’s fingers have been needle-sculpted by hand. She 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.

Simmon’s apron dress is made from two super cute 100% cotton prints in robin’s egg blue & peach. Simmon’s blouse is made of muslin & features hand-gathered sleeves & a vintage button at the collar. Simmon’s clothing features tons of hand-stitching! All visible hems have been hand-stitched (dress & sleeves), as well as the back of the blouse & collar. All clothing has been treated to a coffee and lavender bud bath for a slightly aged appearance. It was then hand-washed & pressed with linen water.

Vrenis Pechuelli

Simmon’s wings have been made of muslin, hand-quilted, hand-painted & sealed. They were painted with Crenis Pechuelli butterfly wings serving as the inspiration (see photo above). They are lightly wired on top & can be very gently bent. They were attached to Simmon with a large black button & several strands of heavy duty thread.

Simmon’s hair is black 100% mohair. I’ve lightly glued, then carefully needle-felted it to her head. Her hair is styled into loose pin curls.

Simmon will be available on eBay beginning tonight at 9:15 PM EST. This is a 7 day auction & she will end Sunday April 27th @ 9:15 PM. Click here to view or bid on this little lady!
