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 new year begins with this little snow-white kitten that looks a little anxious being out in the big nature for the first time. I was inspired to make the kitten because I got some very beautiful home-carded finn-wool from one of my customers, and for a while I had wanted to make a little cat so here was the opportunity.
I have used the technique I have developed for animals where I first needle all the parts of the body and then join them and needle extra shapes on the surface of the body. Here at the kitten I also want to keep the soft hairy look, so I give the kitten an extra thin soft layer.
For the cats eyes I am very careful with the shape of the contour round the eyes. It needs to look a little like mascara.
The kitten is 11 cm high and 18 cm long. The price of the kitten is $175 and 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).
