Meet Felicity!


This is Felicity......she is a totally different twist on the pattern "Flower Child" by one of my very favorite designers, Veena's Mercantile. I have given Felicity a winter theme so she can be displayed from late Fall right into the New Year. She is a petite 17" high from the top of her head down to her little shoes decorated with rusty bells. She has been sewn from muslin, then put through my own special aging process to give her a real old-fashioned look.

Her head is a small 3 1/2" wide, her eyes and facial features have been hand stitched, her mouth is painted on. Felicity is dressed in a sweet little dress with a hand-stitched collar, vintage buttons and feathery trim around the bottom. Her little santa hat matches her dress with the same fabric and feathery trim with a big old rusty bell sewn on the tip. This is truly one of the cutest dolls i've made, and she is one of a kind...made from *found* items that can not be duplicated!
