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 January is this little brown dog made with raw fleece.
First I made a basic body-shape of spelsau-wool carded on my electric carding machine. On this basic shape I made the surface details on the head-shape with the technique I have developed for animals. I made it with raw fleece that I had washed and arranged in thin pieces, ready to be used for nose and ears. Then the body shape was also covered with pieces of raw fleece.The tail was also made of raw fleece and the paws got an extra layer.
When I make such an animal I try to make it soft and movable so it will look alive when you take it in your hands.
The dog is 32 cm long from nose to tail
The price of the dog is $80. 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).
