Hedda is a handmade original, one-of-a-kind folk art cat doll with a hand sculpted face and a wooden rabbit, hand painted by artist Max Bailey.

Hedda and Hopper are the best of friends. She’s a calico cat with watchful green eyes. He’s a white bunny with inquisitive blue eyes. They see everything that everybody is doing.

Hedda and Hopper also have big ears. They listen to anything anybody says. There are no secrets these two don’t know.

If there is something (or a bit of nothing) you would like to know about, they would like to tell you all about it. They provide this very valuable service for no charge, which is somewhat less than the cost of a newspaper.

Who was invited to Lulu’s party? What did Samantha name her new kittens? Who bought that pretty dress that was in the shop window…the one with the big bow in front? They know.

Hedda is wearing that soft yellow and orange dress, with the big bow and a ruffle that frames her pretty face. Her arms are button jointed with antique looking metal buttons of filigreed gold on black, so she can easily pose. Her blouse is cream colored with yellow cuffs, painted on, as are her white bloomers with yellow polka dots, and her two-toned high button shoes. She’s an original one-of-a-kind work of art created from my own design and pattern, and is made from 100% cotton fabric which I sewed, stuffed, and completely hand painted with acrylic paints. I made her dress from 100% cotton fabric, and it too is created from my own design and pattern.

Hedda is 13 inches tall. Her face was sculpted from paperclay smoothed into her fabric head, and her stiffened pearl cotton whiskers were threaded through the paperclay before it dried.

Hopper the white bunny is made of wood. I painted his eyes a brilliant blue and coordinated his colors to match those in Hedda’s dress. He’s about 4 ½ inches long and 2 inches wide.

Hedda’s curly tail allows her to sit up all by herself on a shelf or a table, or in a cabinet. She can also sit in a chair or stand with a doll stand. (Chair and doll stand not included.) She is signed and dated, and sealed with matte varnish for protection and preservation. She comes with a hang tag, a certificate of authenticity, and a copy of her story. Hedda and Hopper are meant for display only.

Many hours go into the making of each of our dolls. We strongly believe in fine craftsmanship and artistry, and we pay great attention to small details. Each doll is a unique work of art, and we are able to produce them in only a very limited number. We do our best to create little dolls with big personalities because that is what we love to do.

If you decide to adopt Hedda and Hopper, they will come to you carefully packaged and delivered by Priority Mail, insured, with Delivery Confirmation, within the United States.

We accept PayPal, money orders, and cashier’s checks. There’s a waiting period for checks to clear. Please contact us within 3 days if you are mailing payment. Payment is expected within 7 days.
