This art doll’s features were rendered in watercolor. Her cloth body machine sewn and hand stitched. Her bodice was hand woven and her skirt was machine embroidered. In her lap is nestled a basket filled with quilting items including a pin cushion. She measures 18” in height and is intended for display only. Created in a smoke-free environment. She is for sale in my etsy shop!
