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 this December is a needle felted baby with a pixie hat. Here in Denmark we have a special relationship to pixies. They are something, we have at Christmas time and we call them “nisses”, and from middle of October till around new year evening, they are all over in many many different materials and expressions. A pixie baby is, by the way, a little unusual because the “nisse” will wear either a red dress or an old-fashioned boys clothes.
Maybe this baby is a mix between Mary´s boy child and a “nisse.
The baby is made with my technique, where I first make all the parts of the body and then I needle them together in the position I want the baby to have. Here it is lying on a piece of white cloth, bending his arms and legs like a baby would do.
He is 26 cm long.
The price is $200. 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).
