The Queen of birds

At last I have finished my beautiful Queen of birds, Raphaella. I wanted her costume to be rich in detail but to have a travelling gypsy feel to it. Her muslin dress has coloured threads, vintage buttons and ribbon, flowers, pom poms and miniature vintage copper pots attached to it she also carries a basket of yarn, vintage silk shawl and bow with a tiny hand-made shrink plastic brooch. Her eyes are a beautiful pale green glass. I hand knitted her royal crown from my own pattern then decorated it with vintage buttons beads and a little bell.
