Hey all,
Ive been busy making my first spirit doll for myself. She is made from wet felted felt, ribbon and beading.
She is giving me strength as my father goes through illness.

That's very pretty! Love the blues, lace & charms are good details. I hope your father gets well soon. Sending good vibes & Hugs too!

What do you do for the felting I have never done that? Do you have molds for the face & cross, they are neat? I guess I need to watch a video.

Thanks. the face is clay made from a plastic mold and the cross is just a bead I bought from somewhere.
The felt has been wet felted. Which is basically wool roving and adding other fibres and then felting it together to make your own fabric felt as such. I suggest you google it. I am totally addicted. Cheesy
