Elizabeth – A Sampler Pincushion Doll Maiden

Pincushion doll Elizabeth embroidered by Giulia Punti Antichi and designed by Giulia Punti Antichi.

This pincushion doll was designed as a special token of love for the daughter of a dearest friend of mine, Elisabetta Gentilesch who is a wonderful young woman and embroideress of the Atelier Merletto di Orvieto. 

The doll was designed to be accompanied by a gorgeous Sewing Trunk.
