Georgia, 16" Natural Fiber Art Doll by Tara's Doll Studio

$575.00


I would like to formally introduce you to Georgia. Georgia is made of natural fibers, where possible, and stands just shy of 16 inches tall. Georgia has a slender body style with shapely limbs. I have firmly needle felted Canadian wool around a substructure that includes wooden beads, disk joints, and wire armature.

I have created a wire armature that will allow Georgia's neck, arms, and independent fingers bend and hold their position. I have also added wooden beads to her knees and elbows, and disk joints to her hips to allow her to bend in the most natural manner possible. 

To add to her realism, I have also placed tiny, strategic stitches along her nose, mouth and the lash lines of her eyes to hug her skin close to the sculpted wool features. Georgia’s skin is high-quality, cotton jersey made in the Netherlands. Her seams are machine stitched twice, and where hand stitching is necessary, I diligently stitch the seams three times to ensure sound construction.

I have lovingly embroidered Georgia’s enchanting, brown eyes with multiple shades of cotton thread. I have accented her eyes with synthetic lashes and securely stitched them to her eyelids. The color on her face and limbs has been added by brushing them with a combination of beeswax and Prismacolor colored pencil and her splash of freckles has been added with Prismacolor, artist quality, permanent ink.

Georgia's wig has been made with alpaca fiber that I have cleaned and processed myself. I have then made it into a weft and diligently stitched it to her head. I don’t recommend brushing Georgia’s hair because the alpaca fibers are very delicate, but it can be gently restyled with your hands to your liking. 

I have made Georgia’s outfits myself. I have created a wardrobe of articles that are perfect for layering, yet each piece is beautiful on its own. Her clothing includes a white cotton dress with cotton lace accent that I have paired with a printed denim overdress. Georgia’s second dress has been made with a combination of yellow and pink floral cotton fabrics. To keep Georgia warm, I have crocheted her a green cowl with the softest alpaca blended yarn and added tiny wooden buttons. Under her dresses, you will find a pair of white cotton jersey underpants with rose detail. To finish her ensemble, I have made her a pair of brown leather flats that fasten at the side with hidden Velcro under a decorative buckle.

Please keep in mind that Georgia is an art doll, not intended for children, and would be better suited to a collector. I would like to thank you very much for taking the time to visit us here and read a little more about Georgia. You can find a few more pictures of Georgia on my blog at
