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”.
The Doll of the month in August is a raven that is made of stables of raw wool that I have brought home from the very northern part of Sweden, from the town Luleå. When I saw this wool I was so impressed of its blackness and its shiny fibers and also its curly ends.
I have, like with other kinds of wool saved it for something special and here it was, the raven. I decided that I would only use the stables without carding the wool, so it kept its character and the curls were fine for the tail feathers.
For the beak and the feets I have used thin wire and then I also had some very dark, blue, lilac silk fleece that I needled on with a thin layer at the wings and the head to give a shiny look. The size is 25×13 cm.
The price is $225. 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).
