OOAK Hansel and Gretel Handmade Keepsake Fairy Tale Felt Plush Dolls
Hansel and Gretel were another duo in fairy tale land I loved. They were left in the woods by a weak and questionable father, how were they to survive? I wanted to bring them to life in a series of favorite fairy tale characters. I adored them because when faced with certain death by a witch they rallied and won.
Fairy tales depicted a long ago time where witches lived in little houses in the woods, animals talked and magic abounded everywhere if you looked close enough.
- Their bodies are made from a quality, soft premium felt and are of my own OOAK design. Gretel's pink skirt, white blouse, black girdle belt and black shoes are made from felt and are hand embroidered in colors of yellow, pink, green and baby blue. Her skirt is embroidered and appliqued with a design of a gingerbread house. There are also simple stitched details on her sleeves, neckline and underwear. She has long blond braids with blue ribbons tied on the ends.
- Hansel’s clothes are also made from felt and his white shirt and green lederhosen are embroidered in colors of yellow, pink, baby blue and green with a design that coordinates with Gretel’s details. His lederhosen has a small applique detail and green buttons. His shoes are brown.
- Hansel and Gretel are about 13 inches tall.
- They are both stuffed firmly with clean, new 100% premium polyester fiberfill. Their arms are jointed so that they can move up and down. Their legs were designed to allow them to be in a standing position on a shelf but they also look great hanging on a wall. The clothes are sewn on and not meant to be removable.
This fun pair would be perfect as sweet nursery decoration or collector art dolls for an older child or adult. Due to the delicate nature of a handmade felt doll they are not a toy and not meant for babies, toddlers and rough play. They also have small buttons, which could be a choking hazard.
I can sew a loop on the back of both so they can be hung, if requested.
They can be spot cleaned if necessary.They are being sold as a set.
