Gwendolyn Loves To Tend Her Flowers - New OOAK Needle Felted Handmade Garden Fairy Art Doll

Gwendolyn Loves To Tend her Flowers - 11" Needle Felted Handmade OOAK Flower Fairy Art Doll

Gwendolyn, like her friends Pearl and Shasta, loves flowers. However, she isn't as optimistic as her friend Pearl and certainly not as gifted with an extraordinary green thumb like Shasta when it comes to her flowers and gardens. She loves flowers and loves gardening but is all thumbs. Nothing turns out like it should. She buys flowers to plant and then she can't remember what she did with them.

Gwendolyn's inner body is fully bendable and is sculpted out of Sunflower's alpaca roving from Rock Garden Alpacas Fiber.  Her outer body, legs, arms, part of her head and pant cuffs are also needle sculpted from Sunflower's alpaca roving from Rock Garden Alpacas Fiber.  Her hands, face, and nose are needle felted from beige roving from Rock Garden Alpacas Fiber. Her eyes are needle felted from light blue roving her and eyebrows are needle felted from Ivy's brown alpaca roving  from Rock Garden Alpacas Fiber.  Her mouth is needle sculpted from red roving and black alpaca roving from Rock Garden Alpacas Fiber is used for her pupils, to outline her eyes, and for needle felting her black boots .  White prime roving from Rock Garden Alpacas Fiber is needle felted for the whites of her eyes and  her cheeks are blushed with a rose chalk.

Gwendolyn's royal blue pants are needle felted from royal blue roving and her light teal shirt and pant cuffs are needled felted from light teal roving. Her teal blue daisy hair is needle felted from a teal and white combination roving and her green tutu leaves are needle felted from dark green moss roving.

Gwendolyn's fairy wings are made from a combination of light green felt and light blue felt and are felted to her.

Gwendolyn is sitting on her favorite wooden stool that has been sponge painted with white, gray, green and beige colors. She just finished potting a new flower in a terracotta pot. Brown roving is used for the dirt in her flower pot, teal blue roving is used to needle felt her flower and green roving is used to needle felt her flower stem.

Gwendolyn and her friends, Pearl and Shasta, have several flowers to re-pot today. Gwendolyn isn't sure what she did with the rest of the flowers that need to be re-potted. She knows she has them, but can't put her finger on them. Perhaps her problem isn't at she's all thumbs when it comes to plants. Perhaps it's because she let's her mind wander. What do you think?
