This is my last belated update….the little snowmen I made this past holiday season:

I had been doing a lot of the little “ragdoll” girls with crazy hairs…but wanted a proper doll with pose-able arms and legs. So I tried wrapping floral wire with lace weight yarn…I ended up loving them….

In October, I was having a lot of trouble with my hand from felting, and was unable to do much, but wanted to do some seasonal Halloween-y things….so I came up with these ghosts. They turned out to be a ton of fun to do:

Back in spring of 2013, I started having a ball making all these little dollies with crazy mohair locks…here are just a few:

Mab Graves, ah the great Mab Graves…and I have produced series number three of  our Vampoodles collaboration. There were 20 in this edition…the little felted poodle, by me, and Mab’s precious and amazing teeny tiny cameo necklace…painted with a one-haired brush and a magnifying glass.

Here are a few pics:

 

 

Yep…tiny clowns…..

And a little custom:

And round 2:

It’s been my dream for such a long time to make a Humpty Dumpty. I finally decided now is the time. I started him about TWO months ago, and the basic egg was done and sculpted in felt for a while as I tried to come up with the best way to do his hands and outfit. It was a challenge, but I’m pretty happy with him.

He has all wool felted egg, face, legs and arms/hands. His shoes were store-bought (!). I used Irish linen for his shirt, all hand sewn, and an amazing rayon velvet in royal blue for his short pants.  He has 3 gold buttons, and a very happy smile. As he sits here on my piano, he almost looks like he will start talking to me.

Here he is, moving backward in time:

Again this year I was invited to submit two pieces to Rivet Gallery, for the Stuff This holiday show of plush works.

I made a pair of holiday bunny ornaments in mohair and needle felting…I kind of loved them….

I was commissioned to do a tiny version of Jeep, the dog from Popeye…and of Pluto…who everyone knows. They are fully jointed and the little Pluto was a real bugger to make, but I liked how he turned out:

I remade my Green Retro Bunny, and also made a White Giraffe on request…the giraffe was so much fun to make, all wired inside…and this bunny made me happier than any of the others. His eyes are a tad larger, and he has a tail-on-a-wire:
