I am often contacted by visitors who would like to buy dolls they have seen in the picture galleries. But all of these dolls have been made as part of projects or have been pre-ordered a long time before they were made. Due to lack of time I only make a very limited number of dolls each year, but I have decided to make some of these dolls available on Feltmaking.com as “Doll of the month”.
Doll of the month in April is this little orangutan baby.
The surface of the baby is made with the reverse barb needle that gives this possibility of making the surface look hairy. The little baby is made with the same technique as I use for the human being, where I first make all the parts of the body and then needle them together. Then I make some extra shapes on the surface and needle the reddish color carefully on. Then I use the reverse barb needle that takes the fibers out on the surface of the body and makes it look hairy.
The orangutan is 20 cm long.
The price is $125. This includes shipping. Only the one dolls is available so if you click on the “Buy Now”-link and the dolls has already been sold you will get an error message. Click below if you would like to buy the doll. You will be taken to the website of PayPal where you can pay by credit card (you don’t need a PayPal-account).
