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.

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!

Hey There Little Red Riding Hood…

LRHeadtoToe This little girl needs no introduction!! Little Red Riding Hood & her pet Wolfie have been so much fun this week! This doll set is my original design and is guaranteed one of a kind art! Little Red is 30″ tall. Her little wolf cub is 10″ wide (excluding tail) & 10.5″ tall. Both art dolls have been made of muslin & stuffed with fiberfill. Red’s lower torso has been rag-stuffed & bean filled, weighting her little bottom, so that she sits nicely. Both dolls have been hand-painted & sanded, top to bottom many, many times & have been treated to paint washes, giving them rich, deeply-aged patinas. Red’s arms are lightly wired allowing her to be slightly posed.

Red’s face has been needle-sculpted by hand and hand-painted. Her bottom lip ‘pouts’ while her top lip is simply painted. She has been painted with various mediums & 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.
