Poppy - Art Doll by Theresa Wells Stifel


"Summer set lip to earth's bosom bare and left the flushed print in a poppy there" F. Thompson's quote seems appropriate for this art doll's poppy red lips. Second in series commererating the four seasons POPPY hangs 27 inches tall. She meant to be enjoyed with your eyes, she is not a children's toy.

Poppy stands 27 inches tall and is sewn from vintage and found linen and cotton fabric and is stuffed with hypoallergenic poly fiberfill. Her body and arm are collaged with fabric transfers of antique postcards of a little girl carrying a flag and souvenir postcards of east coast beaches. These transfers are hand embroidered with a variety of stitches: triple feather, blanket and herringbone. Poppy's bracelet is eyelash yarn and shells and her hair is braided modern eyelash yarn and tied with a vintage ribbon. Her cap is a vintage crocheted egg cup

Poppy's face is hand embroidered by me. I really like how her expression came out; I hope you do too! Please convo me any questions you may have. Thanks for visiting!
