Starla–Little Pink Wonder


I apologize if you’re scared of clowns. However, I don’t think this little girl will send a shiver down your spine.


Meet Starla. She’s quite the talent! This little juggler is a muslin & fiberfill creation. She stands 17″ tall. Her lower torso is rag-stuffed & lightly weighted so that she stands nicely. She’s made in the style of a stump doll & has no legs. Her arms are button jointed.
Starla’s nose, bottom lip & hands have been needle-sculpted by hand for a great bit of dimension & the cutest pout. She’s been hand-painted top to bottom a couple of times & has been aged to perfection!

Her blouse is constructed from muslin while her apron dress is constructed from vintage fabric that is so sweetly faded & super soft. Starla’s blouse boasts a fancy, hand-made tissue paper pom pom which is wired & sewn in place.

Starla’s four pink balls, which she so delicately balances in mid-air are paperclay over styrofoam creations. They’ve been hand-painted, aged & sealed. They’re attached to rusty wire which is attached to her hands.
Her hair is brown mohair. It has been applied with light glue for extra stability & needle-felting. It’s been pulled to the side & left slightly loose.

Starla is currently available in my Etsy shop.

This sweet fellow comes bearing gifts no child could resist!

I know that this gentleman needs no introduction! Beloved by folks both young & old, this little guy is guaranteed to pull at your heartstrings!

He has no legs & is free-standing. His base is rag-stuffed & lightly weighted for stability. Santa’s been hand-painted & sanded a couple of times, giving him a lovely, aged patina. He’s been sealed so that he may be lightly dusted after display. His arms are button jointed allowing them to be slightly posed.

Tucked inside the bag are some very special treats, including a vintage-style stick horse & a tiny doll inspired by vintage Kewpie dolls. All of Santa’s goodies have been made from muslin & have been hand-painted sanded & sealed. The stick horse measures 7″ tall while the little Kewpie measures a wee 6″.
