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 March is this grey striped cat that is sitting in the spring sunshine. The cat is needle felted with wool from a German factory where they produce yarn for knitting and they had a lot of waste, which could not be used for anything, but for me it was perfect because it was dyed in stripes that inspired to make cats.
For the stomach and the paws I have used light grey wool from a Norwegian factory called Hillesvaag. It is a very special quality that is very very soft and that makes it very movable so you can act with the cat and make it look alive when you move the legs.
The cat is made with the technique I have developed for animals, where I first make all parts of the body and then needle them together in the position I want, and then I add extra shapes on the surface.
The cat is 23 cm high. The price 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).
