Lovely Lucy, New One-of-a-kind Art Doll by Elizabeth Ruffing
This is Lovely Lucy. She is an original one-of-a-kind work of art, created from my own design and pattern. She is signed and dated. Lucy is entirely handmade and is meant to be displayed and loved, and she is sturdy enough to be played with. Her body is made of 100% cotton quilting fabrics, which have been fused to an extra layer of cotton sheeting for durability. Her bottom is weighted with Poly-Pellets so she can sit nicely while she looks around. She bends at her shoulders, hips, and knees.
I have hand painted her pretty face with acrylic paint and fabric medium, which I then heat set for permanence. Lucy is decorated with high quality ribbon trims, Rick Rack and machine appliquéd fabric. She has no loose or removable parts. She is stuffed with Poly-fil polyester stuffing. Her ponytails are hand quilted and are a chocolate color. Her eyes are hazel.
Lucy is approximately 10 1/4 inches tall when seated, and approximately 18 1/2 inches long when lying down.
I am also still at work on more flower baby fairies, star babies, and another new doll pattern. Max Bailey has some new kitty dolls to photograph too. Stay tuned for more pictures in the near future!
