Misty Bluebell

Misty Bluebell.

One of a kind, approx 10" tall with five way disc nut & bolt joints.

I have created this little girl with German Mohair in a lovely warm natural colour - almost with a hint of flesh in the colour. Misty Bluebell has ultra suede paw pads which I've shaded on the tips. Her tummy, feet and paws are partly filled with glass beads to make her nice and weighty. Her black glass eyes,  stitched nose and claws complete her angelic look.

I love to use vintage textiles as often as I can so I've been lucky to have found some lovely soft fabric with embroidery for the dress; because it is vintage, it is delicate, you may see from the photos - if you look closely - that that are imperfections in the shirt, all of which add to the character of the outfit. I also found some lovely daisy ribbon trim which I've stitched to the bodice of the dress. The dress is secured at the back with a mother-of-pearl button.

Most of my Cupboard Bears love their hats so 'Misty Bluebell' has a velvet and silk hat, it is lined and trimmed with a rag rose and some more vintage lace on the brim.

This sweet little Lady is ready to find a new home. Misty Bluebell is hoping for some friends that love vintage lace, bluebell blue and afternoon tea.

This little girl will arrive with a stitched in tag on her back and around her neck will be a swing tag with her name and my signature.
