I have for years, and still, spend a lot of time wandering the desert landscapes of the southwestern USA. These memories I hand embroider on wool felt using classic embroidery stitches.
Desert View Crow doll is of my own original design. The Crow itself is sewn from different types of black fabrics – a cotton body, cotton flannel head, wool felt feet, and a satin tail. He has blue eyes and sports a feather boa. He is 9 inches inches from top of head to tip of feet, and will sit 6 inches high. The wings and head are stuffed with poly-fil. The lower body is filled with combination a of poly-fill and poly-pellets, the pellets allowing him to be placed in a secure sitting position or a propped up standing position. There is a hidden signature tag attached under the tail.
The vest is hand sewn from a sky blue wool blend felt. The landscape is made from pieces of wool felt embellished with classic hand embroidery. Crows cruise the sky in and always New Mexico dramatic sky.
There is a snap on the back of the jacket so it can be removed, and later wear a new jacket.
This doll is not meant as a toy but rather as a playful art piece.
