Meet... Eisa O'Leary holding her pet kitty. Measuring 23" tall. Made of muslin that has been put through my pRiM'd-n-painted process then baked in a 200 degree oven. Stuffed with polyfil. Eyebrows and nose are needled sculpted. Mouth is a separate piece, sewn on. Eyes, painted on. Acrylic paints used on all hand painting, shading and blushing. Bright, Irish-red hair is dyed, natural sheep's wool, stitch-tied onto head with heavy thread to match hair. Pretty and dainty floral print dress. Plaid apron held on with rusty pins and bells. Pantaloons of muslin. Hand painted brown boot feet.

Kitty is 4 1/2" tall, made of muslin, stuffed with polyfil, shaded with acrylic paint & water mix. Has black beads for eyes and hand stitched mouth and nose. Jute bow around neck.

2012 copyright doll and short story; written on Americana hang tag:

"Eisa O'Leary arrived in the US in 1891 from Balla, Ireland, as a child. Her mother was a seamstress, her father, a laborer. Eisa later married and had 4 children."

Thank you for taking a peek at Eisa. Please stop back often. I'm sure to have something you're going to love.

I never use patterns to make any of my dolls and no patterns are ever made of them so they are 100% my own, original imagined creations and are sure to be one of a kind.
