PWGL GALLERY HOP — Florence & Tink, Primitive Easter Bunnies

FlorenceTinkHeadToToe

Let me introduce you to Florence & Tink! They’re absolutely guaranteed to fill your home with lots of smiles. (And hopefully, not too much mayhem!)

Florence & Tink have been made of muslin & stuffed with fiberfill. Florence stands freely as her base is rag-stuffed & bean filled. Tink resides in a super cute Easter egg purse which is not removable. Tink, however, is removable & can be displayed on his own.

So much handwork went into the construction of these dolls! I admit, most of it, you can’t see, as so much of the construction requires hand-stitching. But–each bunny has hand-quilted ears & Florence’s wee fingers have been needle-sculpted as well.

FlorenceTinkFace FlorenceTinkTorso FlorenceTinkBunny

Each doll has been painted & sanded a couple of times giving them lovely, deeply aged patinas. Each doll, as well as the egg purse, has been sealed with matte varnish enhanced with a protective UV filter.

Florence’s clothes have been made from taupe osnaburg & 100% cotton prints. There is hand-stitching around the sleeves, neckline, back & hem. Florence’s blouse features decorative stitching with blue embroidery thread that matches perfectly her egg purse. The handle on this purse is braided embroidery thread. Tucked inside it, is a tiny bed of muslin grass!

A Sweet Easter Bunny Sure to Brighten Your Spring.

MollSitting

Meet Moll. This little girl has been made of muslin & stuffed with fiberfill. She measures a little over 14″ from those sweet ears down to those cutesy boots. Moll has been painted & sanded a couple of times, giving her a lovely, aged patina. She’s been sealed with a combination of glossy & matte sealers so that she may be lightly dusted after display. Her knees have been sewn through. She comes with a loop attached to her back making her suitable for hanging although Moll can sit with assistance (if propped).

Moll’s face has been painted with a variety of media. Her nose has been needle-sculpted by hand. Her little paws have been needle-sculpted as well. She sports brown painted gloves. She also sports painted brown boots with tan locks & taupe laces.

Moll’s blouse is made of taupe osnaburg. It has such great texture! It features hand-gathered sleeves & hand-stitching around the neckline and back. It is finished off with huge, vintage, mother of pearl button at the neckline. Her apron dress consists of two beautiful 100% cotton prints. The hems feature hand-stitching in a chocolate brown thread. I’ve attached vintage mother of pearl buttons to the skirt for added detail.

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.

A primitive Easter Rabbit & her Posy

TillyHeadtoToe I’m so happy to introduce to you, Tilly. Like all my dolls, she is my original design and is guaranteed one of a kind art! I’ve used no patterns to create her or her clothing. She is a whopping 31″ tall. She has been made of muslin & stuffed with fiberfill. I’ve stuffed Tilly’s lower torso with beans & rags in order to weight her little bottom. I’ve hand-painted & sanded her top to bottom many, many times. Tilly has been stained for an ‘oh so vintage’ appearance. Her arms are lightly wired.

Tilly’s sweet face has been needle-sculpted by hand, (nose), and hand-painted. Her face is heavily detailed! She has been painted with premium acrylic paints and shaded & highlighted heavily with oil pastels, artist pencils & acrylic paint. She has been sealed top to bottom with glossy acrylic sealer so that you may dust her lightly after display & keep her for a lifetime.

Tilly’s fingers have been needle-sculpted by hand. She is wearing white painted gloves (elbow length!) & brown boots with pretty smoky purple socks, matching the hydrangea she carries, perfectly. Tilly’s shoes have been painted & heavily detailed, right down to the laces!

Tilly’s apron dress is made of a 100% cotton, brown, floral print. Her blouse has been made out of white muslin & features hand-gathered sleeves & a vintage button. Tilly’s skirt & blouse feature tons of hand-stitching! All visible hems have been hand-stitched (skirt, sleeves & collar). Her clothing has been treated to a coffee and lavender bud bath for a semi-grubby, aged appearance. All pieces have been hand-washed & pressed with linen water.

Tilly carries a dried hydrangea bouquet, surely a sweet gift for someone! This dried hydrangea features delicate shades of smoky purple, sage & light blue. The stem has been wired & wrapped with florists’ tape & then wrapped in burlap. The stem also features a midori satin ribbon band, chocolate in color, topped off with a raffia bow — the perfect combination of frilly & rugged.

Tilly makes her eBay debut tonight at 9:15 PM. She will end Feb. 10th at 9:15 PM. Click here to view or bid! (Link will not work until she is available on eBay at 9:15.)
