Doll Of The Month – June 2014

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 doll of the month for June is this old grandmother, whom I brought out in the wonderful springtime here in Denmark.

I like to make those old faces and old body´s and then, when she at last gets her big white hair she is just cute.

She is made with my technique, where I first make all the parts of the body and then needle them together in the position I want the doll to have and then give it extra shapes on the surface. I never get tired of that technique because it can express all kinds of figures. Classic figures, gnomes, trolls, young, old, lying figures, standing a.s.o.

I must also admit that it is a technique that takes time, but for me it does not matter, when I know that I can sculpture so well with it, and keep finding new details to add.
The figure is 27 cm high.

The price is $185. 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).

  1. She is lovely, she reminds me very much of my Nanna.
    It amazes me how many different expressions you can create on your dolls.
    I bought your book a while back and it is very detailed, but I need to practice lots more. I have only made 2 dolls a Santa and a girl doll.
