The Girl Who wanted Wings

This is my most recent creation, based on a Peter Pan like character, such as Wendy Darling.  This girl has great aspirations, and when a Peter Pan like character comes to whisk her away one night, she hopes her “pillow wings” will help her fly.   

She comes, donned in her old fashioned style night dress and knickers; with long flowing blonde hair, made from pure merino wool.  I have kept her face make-up simple, as in my eyes she is a child still.  Slippers made from leatherette, wool and silk have been added to finish her.

One last element I added was a doll and hand made leather book, with tea stained pages!  I thought these elements could create a sense of childhood.....
