OOAK Handmade Cloth Art Doll

For those of you who collect dolls, this is just the thing. It is one of a kind and certainly an eye catcher.
Iris and Ivy Dolls owner skraczy says,

OOAK handmade Art Doll. Not for children. This doll is made expressly for display. The total height if erect is 18 inches although she is made in a sitting position of 9 inches high. Body is cotton Batik fabric, hand sown beads, polyfil and buttons. The eyes are bridal satin buttons colored with Micron pens, watercolor pencils and white gel pen. False eyelashes complete the face. Her hair is rag strips matching the different fabrics used in the body. Her fingers are filled with pipe cleaners and are movable and separate. The body's main pattern is Van Gogh's "Starry Night".

I like to think that she is a thought, a dream or a promise. Her name is Promise. She belongs to the night sky and watches over the land with the promise of delightful dreams. The fairies look to her for inspiration and guidance. She needs a home where she can sit and look out at the night.
