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 for February is this little grandmother that has been forced to come out in the cold but wonderful sunny weather. She is wearing this woollen dress that cowers the whole body and then she has her white silk panties on.
She is made with my technique for dolls, where all parts of the body at first are needle-felted and then needled together in all the joints in the position I want the doll to have. For the face I have changed my usual way of building it up and I find that it gives me new possibilities of expressions.The mouth can open even more than before and the cheeks can be shaped more.
The wool I use is from my favorite Danish wool factory “Henrichsens Woolspinderi”. This fleece is perfect to work with, making dolls.
The grandmother is 28 cm high
The price of her is $160. 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).
