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”.
These two cheetah kittens are dolls of the month this June.
I have worked with many different kinds of cats for a long time and when I saw a photo of a Cheetah I wanted to make that kind of a cat too. It has a special face with the dark brown lines down at the sides of the nose. The kitten has the most beautiful eyes that looks so worried, and I could not stand that expression.
I have used my usual animal technique, where I shape each part of the body first and then needle them together and add extra shapes on the surface of the body.
I made two kittens as it seems the right thing, that the two kittens could sit together, while the mother has gone hunting.
The biggest kitten is 16 cm high.
The price is $200. This includes shipping. Only the one (pair of) 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).
