Meet Little Red Riding Hood! Did you have any idea that is who she was?
I had a lot of fun creating this piece. I've got so many storybook characters rattling around in my head, asking to be made into whimsical little art dolls. Now that there is no real holiday season I'm preparing for, I've decided now would be a good time to grant some of those wishes.
This Little Red Riding Hood is sort of a cold weather version. She is wearing long sleeves, striped stockings and fur-trimmed boots. Her darling pleated skirt is made from paper and topped with a black velvet vest that laces with tiny black satin ribbon. Her signature fashion statement cloak is hand sewn from red wool felt and tied with a red satin ribbon. I love her curly auburn hair, tied into pigtails. She wouldn't be complete without a basket of sweets for her Grandmother.
Little Red Riding Hood is not yet available in my etsy shop. I'm hoping to have her listed soon, along with a Big Bad Wolf. Stay tuned!
What other storybook characters would you like to see me create? I'm always open to suggestions.
The sun is shining here today! YAY! Maybe it's finally spring!!
