Abra….a Witchy Bust Doll Now on eBay.

This little magical lady is now listed on eBay. Yep, her name is Abra…(not Abracadabra, just Abra…you wouldn’t want to cast a spell every time you say her name now would you?!) She’s a new style of doll for me. I’ve been tossing the idea of creating a ‘bust’ style doll back & forth for a while now. Her torso is completely fabric…no paint, while her head is my typical needle-sculpted, hand-painted style of doll head. She features my signature needle-sculpted nose & lip & has such a beautiful, warm vintage patina.

Abra’s torso is rag-stuffed & lightly weighted so that she ‘stands’ nicely & evenly. The rag-stuffing gives her such an old-timey feel. She wears a little tulle collar & flaunts vintage black buttons along her torso. Her witch hat will be pinned in place with corsage pins. The brim is wired so that it may be posed any way you like.

Abra’s cute little red pigtails are 100% mohair. They’ve been needle-felted in place.

Abra has been listed on eBay. She ends Sunday Aug. 28th at 9:15 PM EST. Click here to view or bid on this little lady! Just don’t blame me when the magic starts flying!

Nan — a Primitive Halloween Party Gal!

This little girl’s ready to fill that bucket! Meet Nan. She’s a 16″ original, one of a kind muslin & fiberfill creation. She’s  been hand-painted top to bottom and has been sanded & aged, giving her such a lovely, vintage patina. Nan has been sealed so that she may be lightly dusted after display. She has button jointed arms which may be slightly posed. She has an embroidery loop thread attached, making her suitable for hanging–or she may sit with assistance. Her legs are sewn through.

Nan’s face has been been carefully painted with a variety of media. Her mask is painted. Her nose & lips have been needle-sculpted by hand, giving her a great little pout. Her hands are needle-sculpted as well. Nan wears pretty green stocking with hand-painted ribbon closures & cute shoes painted in the style of MaryJanes!

This moon print fabric is 100% cotton in shades of cream & lime.  Nan’s blouse is made of white muslin & features a beautiful mother of pearl button at the neckline.The hem, sleeves, neckline & back have been stitched by hand.

This fun little fellow is a paperclay creation. He’s been hand-sculpted, without the use of molds, over a styrofoam armature. He’s been hand-painted with a variety of media & sealed. A rusty wire creates the perfect primitive handle.

Nan is currently available on Ebay. She ends Sunday, Aug. 29th at 9:15 PM EST. Click here to bring the party to your house!
