Yesterday we put the tree up and it smells lovely.


Look who turned up in the tree this morning, a little Christmas pixie.

Skater Boy

 

Meet Skater Boy. I thought I'd try another doll.


His skaterboard and hat aren't attached.


And from the back.


Having a play on his skateboard.


And from the back.


Then he went for it and scooted along.





He is now wearing his hat to the back!


Oooh wonder what trick he is going to perform next!

Gnome


As no-one knew what at Tomte was on my post of yesterday, I decided to make a gnome.


He has red hands and red feet, a fluffy white beard and a big button nose.


His hat is a blend of the green and red colours.


He is laughing in hysterics and kicking his little feet.

Felted Tomtes


I decided to try to make a couple of tomtes and here they are. A tomte is a mythological creature from Nordic folklore typically associted with the winter solstice and the Christmas season. 


This one has locks on the top of the hat.


And as this one is a lot smaller and he also has big ears, I left his hat plain.


I took them outside to get some photos in the sprinkle of snow we had but I sat them on glass dishes as I didn't want to get the locks wet.


And this is what they look like from the back.

Roy


Meet Roy, my first attempt at a doll character. He stands approx 10" tall.


He is not without his issues, for starters his hands are too big!


He is very flexible though. His arms and legs move independently.


He can sit, but he can't stand on his own.


Here is a close up of his face. His ears don't match and his nose could probably be a bit smaller!


His clothes are made from batting and pre-felt.

Thanks once again to Kay and her fabulous tutorials.

Parker


Meet Parker who likes to play with his ball.


He doesn't like to give it up.


And now he wants to play, his tail is wagging.


As you can see, he is very flexible.


Then he met Rhufus and George.


All playing together in the park.

Winston



Body and limbs assembled, head at the ready.


Meet Winston, my big bunny.


He is posing on top of the chimnea.








And his little button bunny tail.


And just to prove that he can stand up on his own, here he is on the table.


And another one.
