Felt Friends

      These lovely little dolls are incredibly posable because of their wrapped wire bodies! I use natural materials as much as possible, and each doll is a hand sewn, one-of-a-kind treasure. They are lovely companions for travel, or spontaneous play anywhere because of their small size. The very tallest adult dolls are about 4.5”, and the babies are a little over 1” in length. These are perfect for your dollhouse or nature table!

     I start with chenille stems wrapped in cotton embroidery floss, then add a bit of stuffing for padding as needed, and dress them in wool felt clothing. The wool felt is far superior to acrylic; it is far more durable and an absolute pleasure to touch. The clothes are sewn in place and are not removable. Felt Friends do not stand alone, but they prop beautifully.

     The heads are firmly stuffed cotton broadcloth securely sewn in place. I draw each face by hand with prismacolor pencils. The hair is soft wool roving.

     Their animal friends are made with 100% wool felt sewn with cotton floss. Most have wired legs to help them stand securely.

     The dolls are designed to be played with, although many do go to adult collectors.

NOTE: Small parts, not intended for children under 4, or who still put things in their mouth. Heads could conceivably be pulled off; some accessories could present a choking hazard. Please use your best judgment.
