For years, and still, I spend a lot of time wandering the desert landscapes of the southwestern USA. I hand embroider these memories onto wool felt using classic embroidery stitches.
Late Summer Greens Crow doll is of my own original design. The Crow itself is sewn from different types of black fabrics – a cotton body and head, wool felt feet, and a patterned satin tail. He has blue eyes and sports a feather boa. He is 9 inches inches from top of head to tip of talons, 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, which allows 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 jacket is hand sewn from a cobalt blue wool blend felt using hand embroidery to create the hilly landscape, along with desert bushes.
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.
