Granny Kate art doll and armchair
A delightful handmade textile art doll with arm chair and doily rug, made to sit on your desk on shelf as an amusing decoration. I have wanted to make an older looking doll for a while, to achieve the look I used a magnificent vintage floral design cotton to make her dress, I used some crochet cotton to fashion a sweet little cardigan and faux pearls to make earrings and a necklace. Granny Kate has alpaca wool hair that is a grey/ beige colour, and it is worn in a bun style, she also has a little lace trim at the bottom of her dress, a petticoat and lace knickers on, plus tiny little wire glasses. I have included wire in the dolls body so she sits really well in to the seat and doesn't slide off. The armchair is also handmade by me and is covered in a simple beige linen with silver feet and pins in places (to give it more strength), the chair also comes with an ivory linen cushion with a tiny lace butterfly design and a white round crochet blanket draped over the back of the chair to put over grannies knees if she gets cold. The little scene is finished off with a vintage beige doily to go under the chair as a rug. I think this charming little scene has just the right touch of whimsy to make you totally fall in love with Granny Kate, she will listen to all your troubles and never tell a soul.
