Meet Abbey the Garden Angel

Good morning prim pals. Pictured above is my take on the Garden Angel Doll Challenge at: Ravenwood Whimzies. The angel's name is Abbey, and she is approximately 24" tall. Abbey wears a 100% cotton frock, pantaloons, and apron. Her body is made of unbleached muslin that has been lightly coffee-stained and vanilla scented. The eyes are two black buttons, and Abbey's nose is a simple patch of rose-colored cotton fabric. Being an angel, her wings are made of 100% cotton in a white on white tonal butterflies print fabric. There is a layer of quilt batting sandwiched between the wings. Abbey's hair is auburn heavy weight yarn. To shade her from the sun, she has a straw hat with a batch of daisies slung over her back. In her arms Abbey holds a prim wooden cross that is stained gold. Many thanks to Wendy for this another fun Challenge. Be sure to head on over to her blog to participate. What will your Garden Angel look like? To see a back view of Abbey, follow the link below my signature.
