Lily was coffee stained and painted again with a wash of acrylic paints. She has sheeps wool for hair, painted eyes with eyelids and primitive looking hoop earrings. The pictures don’t do it justice. She holds a small basket of laundry. This gal has individual wired fingers and sculpted toes. I painted her fingernails and toenails to add to more details. Her arms are slightly bent so that she can hold her basket.

Our group of doll artists in Maida Doll group challenged ourselves to make a storybook doll to send to Prims Magazine last Spring. I made this doll “Puss N Boots” and he was featured in the Autumn issue of Prims Magazine!
He has now returned home after his long journey and ready to be displayed in someone else’s home. :o)
This is a One of a Kind Cat with a pattern that I designed. He will come to you signed and dated. He was made of muslin fabric, painted with acrylic paints and stained to give him a primitive look. His tail has a wire that was inserted in the making process, allowing him to stand alone. He wears a black hat and painted boots and cape. These were sanded down a bit to give it some age. I added a watch wristband for his buckle and made him a small sack to put his rabbit in. ;o)
He measures 13 inches tall. :o)
Just listed this on ebay. Painted on a 9 x 12 inch canvas. It is titled "Blues" Love painting this and will definitely make more. :o) If you'd like to purchase this item, you can click on "Items for sale on Ebay" in the top right corner of this page and it will take you to the auction. :o)
