Emaline Needle doll OOAK

Emaline is the daughter of a ship merchant. On the day the ships come into Port, are her favorite days. It's like Christmas and the Captain always brings her a lovely new hat.

Emaline is a needle doll. She is made from osnaburg. She stands alone at 10 inches tall.
Her dress is cotton trimmed in a fine silk ribbon.

 The lovely hat at the top of her head was created with wool, tulle and yarn to look like feathers. I included a vintage pin with a gray pearl to use as a hat pin.

Emaline's face is hand needle sculpted and painted. Her hair is a super soft dark brown curly wool. It has been needle felted into a lovely bun.

She is called a needle doll. I inserted old needles into her clay arms and have stitched them to her body.
 This is the back of Emaline's lovely dress. I had so much fun creating this.

The lovely shawl draped around her shoulders is a vintage piece of lace from a grandmother in law of a friend. It has been tucked safely away in my treasure box for many years. I was honored to use just a little for this piece.

The price for Emaline is SOLD, thank you.
She will arrive carefully packaged from our smoke free home. She is a Art Doll and not meant as a toy for small children.

May she bring a smile to your face and a tug at your heart.
