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 August is this old fat witch with her long thin legs. The inspiration for her came from the old Danish tradition called Sct Hans, where we late June build a big fire and gather around it, singing our special Sct Hans song and from ancient time the witch was burned on this fire.
Here she is – made with my technique, where I needle all the parts of the body and needle them together in the position I want. Then needle extra shapes on her and build this old ugly face
and bony hands and feet. At last she has got thin wire stuck up in her legs to make them stiff so she can stand on them.
The lilac hair and her shadows makes her look even older. She is 26 cm high.
The price of the doll is $195. This includes shipping. Only the one doll is available so if you click on the “Buy Now”-link and the doll 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).
