Spun cotton Chenille wee little springtime sprite vintage inspired original ooak figure

A handmade spun cotton and chenille vintage craft original, the head of this wee little springtime sprite is hand spun of organic cotton fibers and hand painted, her figure crafted from vintage cotton chenille pipe stems made in England. She sports attire fashioned in a pale pink double-sided crepe paper embellished with pink glass beads and glitter. In hands, she holds a tiny pink spun cotton lacquered mushroom sold to me as vintage and stands on an old tiny wooden thread spool embellished with pink vintage velveteen ribbon, a spun cotton mushroom, and a sprig or two of millenary peeps with a scalloped edge paper board round at the base.

Created for standing display she measures an approx. 5 ‘’.
( If you would like for me to add a string at the knot of her headdress to accommodate hanging please convo me in advance of shipping).

“This little sprite is just one in a series of many, many spun cotton and chenille ooak figures I call my wee little sprites. Inspired by the little people I imagined as a child who would come out and about when the house fell quietly down in sleep to leave me blades of grass and flower pedals in summer amidst the folds of my bed sheets and tangles of colored threads on the bottom of my socks in winter. I dreamed they had mothers who sewed them fancy dresses from fabric scraps found on my grandmothers sewing room floor. I dreamed them pale and pretty, delicate but resilient and resourceful. They were the comfort of fairy kisses on my sleeping face keeping all things that go bump in the night from invading my dreams with nightmarish things. My wee little sprites are a result of the stores I would craft of their mischievous and resourceful little lives. Surrounding me today… tribes of little people who no longer need to hide themselves away from me. Calling to come out now from the boxes and boxes of treasured things … from a hand with a need to take to making in the hours when the house falls quietly down in sleep”.

Thank you for viewing the craft,
