Almost finished doll, Alpaca and Strawberry fairy for Shepherd's Harvest
Well, I probably should wait until these are finished to post them, but I didn't want my friend Jane to think I was being a bum and not crafting lately, (also have to take advantage of the few hours of natural light I get in the dungeon I call home)....so here are my three "almost" finished feltings from the past two nights . All items are "abandoned toys" that I hope to find new homes for because they do not deserve to spend the rest of their lives in a land fill !
The larger doll is felted into a rather sexy " but warm Merino outfit with arm and leg warmers . I still need to make her some boots and give her a bit more "interesting hair "...I'm thinking she would look stunning in a felted black top hat , (something I wish I had the nerve to wear...I love top hats.) Might add a few accessories as the mood strikes .
The "woolie...repurposed furbie is...well, I know he looks a wee bit like Scooby Doo or Wiley Coyote but is actually my first "alpaca head" . I just need to finish his ears and add some alpaca "fur" to his head to fluff him up a bit . Considering adding some false eyelashes as well because I love alpaca eyelashes !
The tiny girl is a Strawberry fairy still patiently awaiting her wings . I designed the wings using some flower petals and just need to felt them to her back .
Back to work tonight and more felting fun to follow .
I'll repost these when I get them finished
