Aunt Maude in her finest Scottish Tweed

Aunt Maude.


One of a kind. Approx 9 1/2" tall.

Aunt Maude is a wee Scottish Lady in her beautiful tweed coat. 

The tweed has some wonderful moorland colours; soft blue, for an Autumn sky; the colour of a Loch with its reflections of green moors and blue sky creates the main colour of the tweed. There is a pale and a slightly darker tan in the fabric; similar to the colour of bracken at the end of the Autumn. 

Aunt Maude has ultra suede paw pads; her tummy, feet and paws are partly filled with beads to give her weight. She is five way disc jointed and has glass black eyes.


I love silk so I've created Aunt Maude a silk hat. The colour is pale pale dusty rose. I have trimmed the inner brim with a complimenting dusty brown cotton fabric that matches the lining of the hat. An oversized dusty brown feather trims the brim.

As Aunt Maude's coat is such a lovely Tweed. I didn't want to cover it too much so she wears a cream lace shawl, secured with a silver and mother of pearl cameo brooch. 

I'm adopted - thank you!
