I've been busy lately and this is the only thing I've felted in awhile. It took forever because mixing the different colours of roving together resulted in a large, very fluffy ball and lots of extra pokes as a result. There's black, brown, grey, pink and red in there, with a thin layer of green over the top. It turned out just like I wanted it to, though.





This might be a good sign that I need some kind of horror flick intervention. Comments welcome, though.  Cheesy

i saw one of those pictures on the front page for the forums and was like "what is that"...not what i was suspecting.

but it's pretty neat Smiley what does one do with a horror doll with a needle felted brain? will you close her head up or will the brains be open for everyone to see?

Hee hee. Thanks guys.  Cheesy I wasn't sure how this would go over (which is why I didn't post any pics of the rest of her.)

She's just for display. Just like when she still had her blue eyes and "country maiden" dress. (It's a porcelain doll.) Except that now I'll probably have to hide her if anyone ever brings their kids over. Yes, her brain will remain exposed. She's dressed in a hospital gown, so her bum is exposed too. Poor dear gets no privacy around here.

Thanks!  Cheesy Cheesy  I've seen reconstructed dolls for sale and I've always wanted to make my own. Then my mom found this one in her basement and she was going to throw it out so I snagged it. It was really fun to do. Now I'm on the lookout for more dolls to ickify.

Here are a couple of pics.

There are loads more on this blog. They're more detailed too.
