Giveaway Winner and Felted Heads

Congratulations to Lillian Johnson, you are the winner of the Big Giveaway! I will contact you on the email address you used to comment and you can tell me which of the bundles you’d like!

This ridiculous looking thing sits on a bookcase, in a plant pot with the top of its head poking out:

I’d pretty much forgotten about it until I started looking for something last week. I used to make similar looking heads out of air-drying clay as incense holders, they mostly look funny though, this is really ugly! I can’t remember how I’d planned to finish it, but I’m sure it wouldn’t improve it much! I’ve only given 3D needlefelting a try a few times, none of them have been very successful, but this first one I did is definitely my favourite, ‘Granddad’:

I’m not saying it’s based on my Dad or anything, but I saw his comb-over get wind swept more than a few times when I was younger!

I think the inspiration for this next one was a few of the teachers I had in Secondary School. I fully intended her to have clothes, but yet again, it remains unfinished!

Do those arms look like they’re on back to front?!

Probably the most shapeless legs ever!

The face is pretty terrifying close up:

I think the best part of this one is the hair, I was quite pleased with meself for this:

I hope they’ve given you a few smiles, if I ever get around to finishing them, I promise to show you!

    Tee-hee – lovely post Zed! I think the teacher’s hair-bun is superb and I laughed aloud at the comb-over in flight!

    I’m so excited to learn that I won. Thank you! I look forward to hearing from you. Lillian Johnson

  3. That so funny Zed. A great place to keep the first one, he looks like a pot head. The comb over is great.

  4. Grandad is hysterical. I look forward to seeing with clothes on!

    Grandad is a hoot! And if you put clothes on the other doll, she will look much better. Covers up any anatomical abnormalities. 🙂

    I think we’ve all seen our share of Grandads and since childhood I’ve had to cover up my giggles. I hope overall that your secondary school was a good experience despite your female models?
