Gulliver is a cloth art doll with hand embroidered features, a dark blue mane and tail, and a little outfit tailored just for him. As the first male doll from my Snapdragon Meadow Collection, I wanted him to be varied from the mares. Instead, I chose to detail him with eyelids and to emphasis his cheekbones and bridge of his face. He comes to you with a hand illustrated mini poster. A source of inspiration for his future travels!
Gulliver's pants and scarf are crafted from vintage extra light weight Japanese cotton that I acquired while living in Okinawa, Japan. A wonderful find that I knew I had to have the moment I spotted it. Japanese looms for traditional textiles are only about 14 inches wide. I have left his scarf exactly as it was intended, both salvages (edges) intact, and have delicately frayed the ends by hand.
Gulliver's shirt is sewn from a white double gauze and embellished with a marigold colored blanket stitch around the collar. His sleeves have been rolled and hand stitched into place. His cotton vest is crafted from a combination of American and Japanese modern prints. The green and white tree pieces are of a Japanese duck cotton. Sewn together in the same fashion as a quilter pieces a quilting block, his vest is a mini work of art and attention to design. To continue with the woodsy/nature theme, I chose a print of earthy tones with beetles, moths, butterflies, and foliage. Whenever Gulliver attends a special event, he likes to turn his vest inside out, to show it off!
