Esmeralda the Witch is my entry into the Autumn Challenge at Creating the Hive. She is officially for sale on Ebay - you can view her auction by clicking Ebay Listings Esmeralda is 6 1/2 inches tall and made from vintage cream mohair, that is naturally distressed. She is stuffed firmly with excelsior and weighted with stainless steel shot. Her face, ears and paws are shaded with permanent fabric paint and she has amber german glass eyes and a waxed nose. Esmeralda has vintage wool felt paw pads. She is wearing a collar and witches hat, made from hand dyed, black and orange wool felt. The collar is decorated with tiny vintage bells.
Esmeralda comes with her old fashioned halloween candy container and a brooche, made with reproduction Hallowe'en ephemera. The image is soldered behind beveled glass, with a decorative design.
