Darling little antique style ellie. Dusty has the look and feel of an old, well loved toy.

I have used hand dyed black mohair, which i have aged with heat set fabric paints. He has a few bald patches, and his hair is quite sparse. Inner ears are vintage, newsprint textile. 

Dusty has been loosely stuffed with sawdust, and some micro steel weighting.

He has German glass eyes with incorporated glass whites. 

Dusty has wooden joints, with steel cotter pins. 

He wears a ruff collar made from vintage cotton ticking, which I have further aged. I made him a small wooden tag, with a sweet vintage circus print label. His pillbox hat is made from an old vintage bottle top, attached with wire chinstrap.

Dusty is 6 inches tall seated, 7 inches from head to heel. He does not stand unsupported.

He is a sweet little handful for lovers of antique style toys.
