There is a saying that goes something like “A Girl needs her Beauty Rest”. I am sure there are times my Sons think they needed a Mask or even a pair of head phones to tune out all the giggling.
My first Love has always been sewing. 7 to 9 years ago I fell into the World of Wool and Needle Felting. I love it to relax at night and just create. My dolls………. I know here we go again talking to the Dolls. Just wait I actually talk to Wool Sculpted Dolls that I have created. They each have a Rock in their head.
Annie Mae is my Sewing Helper She helps me create and sew. Always there for a helping hand. Now Cecilia she is quite the Character. Kendall trusted them both when we were trying on the Elephant sleep mask.
Not sure if I would Have. All worked out well.
My Sleep masks are made from 100 percent Wool felt,Wool Merino and I also use some Pre felt. (That is felt that is not completely felted yet.)
I start by drawing a free hand mask on wool felt, from there I build the mask up by felting the wool in.
From here your creativity is free to roam. You can sculpt with that needle and it becomes a OOAK unique Sleep mask for your Doll.
To me they always look a little goofy until I start to get to the end. Then they all come alive. My Dolls just love them. Last year I sold out. So I have started to make some more. I always back them and use elastic for keeping the mask on. Now I do confess the Elephant one didn’t sell, that was because my youngest Loves Elephants she hid it. LOL! I have made a new one.
This is the back. I make sure they are securely done so no chance of coming undone or I certainly hope not. I will stand behind all my work.
This was taken last year as a simple group, before Mr. Elephant disappeared. This year I have been working on Reindeer, Santa, Elves,unicorns. They will all appear soon for your favorite dolls to wear.
