My sweet patriotic angel dolls have been stitched from muslin and cotton star fabric and are stuffed very firmly with fiberfil. They have been aged, painted, and well sanded for a perfect old time appearance. They have perfectly prim hand stitched facial features, and wispy hand dyed wool hair which has been stitched in place. Their skirts are ruffled patriotic ticking homespun fabric. Their wings are natural osnaburg. They carry handmade flags. The blue star angel carries a prim painted basket and the red star angel carries a muslin banner. They are both trimmed with shiny tin jingle bells. Their bloomers are natural cotton. They are perfect to display year round. They are just about 16 inches tall, and will come signed and dated. Sold individually, pick by star color… Created with many loving stitches in my smoke free home, a Sassafras Hill original. *both have been spoken for, thanks so much*
