Merry, A Christmas Elf in Shades of Green


Meet Merry. Merry measures 18″ from the tip of her hat to the tip of her tiny curled toes. She’s been made of muslin & is stuffed with fiberfill. Merry 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. Merry has an embroidery loop thread attached, making her suitable for hanging. She can also sit with assistance. Her knees have been sewn through.

Merry’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 & super sweet little pout. Her hands have been needle-sculpted. She sports brown painted boots with detailed laces.

I just love all these prints together! They’re 100% cotton. I’ve hand-stitched the hem with olive green thread. Merry’s blouse is sewn from taupe osnaburg & features hand-stitching at the neckine, sleeves & back. A vintage button graces the neckline. Her tiny party hat is constructed from cotton fabric, is edged with warm & natural batting & is lightly stuffed. It’s attached to Merry with straight pins.


Merry’s super curly brown hair is 100% mohair. It has been applied with light glue for extra security & needle-felting.

Merry is now available on eBay. She will end Sunday, Nov. 22 at 9:15 PM EST. Click here to bring this cheery elf to your Christmas home!

Just who makes all those perfectly prim toys for Christmas?



I bet this little girl might have an inkling.


Meet Eloise & Annie. They’re my original designs & have been made of muslin & stuffed with fiberfill . Eloise measures 26″ tall from the top of her head to the bottom of her feet. Annie measures just over 12″ tall. Eloise’s lower torso is rag-stuffed & bean-filled so that she sits nicely. She’s been painted & sanded many times, giving her a lovely, aged patina. She has been sealed with a combination of matte & glossy sealers so that she may be beautifully preserved. Annie can sit with assistance.  Both dolls have knees which have been sewn through, making them perfect shelf sitters. Eloise’s arms are lightly wired allowing them to be gently posed.

The apron dress she wears is made from 100% cotton prints in festive holiday colors. Eloise’s blouse has been made of taupe osanburg & features a big, vintage, mother of pearl button at the neckline. It also features hand-gathered sleeves. All exposed hems have been hand-stitched on both Eloise & Annie’s dresses. There is also hand-stitching at the back of their blouses & along the back seams.


Annie’s dress features a white pearl bead at the neckline & two vintage mother of pearl buttons. Her hair is 100% red mohair & has been lightly glued then stitched & needle-felted into place. Her pigtails are tied with green embroidery thread.

Eloise’s hair is honey blonde 100% mohair. I’ve applied it with light glue & needle-felting. It is tied into a side pony with chocolate ribbon.
