Mon Petit Frère

Adeline- 18" Natural Fiber Art Doll


I meant to do my work today,
But a brown bird sang in the apple tree,
And a butterfly flitted across the field,
And all the leaves were calling me. 

And the wind went sighing over the land,
Tossing the grasses to and fro,
And a rainbow held out its shining hand--
So what could I do but laugh and go?

by Richard Le Gallienne

Meet Adeline, she is natural fiber art doll made by Mon Petit Frère. She is made from my 18" pattern and has the realistic proportions of a school aged child. Her head and limbs have been carefully needle felted in sweet smelling eco wool over many, many hours to create firm facial features and smooth and shapely arms and legs.   Her arms and legs are sewn with tiny stitches at the shoulders and top of legs for a standard hinge style joint. Her skin is made from Laib Yala Swiss cotton interlock.

Adeline has a sturdy armature running from her head through to her belly. This allows her head to move subtly from side to side and up and down, providing endearing gestures and adding an extra element of fun to those who love to photograph their dolls.

Her hair is made from shiny brunette teeswater locks which I've both sewn and needle felted to her head. Her eyes are embroidered a deep brown.

She comes wearing the following:

-a sweater with a ruffled neckline
-a pair of fully lined denim overalls 
-a pair of foldover boots
-a jersey hair tie
-and of course her socks and undies

is a collectable doll not suited for small hands but rather for the adult collector. Not for children under 7 due to small parts and long, delicate fibers*

Thank you for your love and support of hand crafted dolls!
