Needlefelted Mouse Doll and Flowers
Iris is dressed in periwinkle-blue leggings and sweater which I have needle felted onto her. They cannot be removed. I’ve hand knit a cream-colored jumper which she wears over the sweater & leggings. It ties at each shoulder but is not removable. I’ve hand embroidered a set of periwinkle blue flowers on the front skirt of her jumper and I’ve felted a periwinkle flower to her head over one ear. Neither the clothes she wears or the flower over her ear are intended to be removed. They’ve been put on permanently. In one hand she carries a bouquet of blue flowers. I’ve sewn her flower bouquet to a ribbon and attached it to her wrist. It is on her permanently as well. Iris’s eyes are imported glass beads that have been meticulously sewn to her face by stitches that run through her head and connect one eye to the other.
