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 dolls of the month for this November are two little singing birds.
They have nearly natural size and they are from this technique for birds I have worked with the last half year. I love to study the birds and find pictures of them until I know in every detail how this certain bird, that I will make, looks. I use a very very fine rainbow dyed merino for them, so I have all the shades of beautiful colors I need to make them look alive.
The bird with the red breast is a bullfinch (pyrrhula pyrrhula). It is 13 cm long. The little bird with the green colors is a goldcrest (regulus regulus). It is 10,5 cm long.
It is very exciting to bring the birds out in the nature and make photos of them and see how much alive they look as if they belong there.
I also love to place them in a window or on a branch or at a flower in my home.
The price of both birds is $245 (USD) 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.
