It's needle felted using Corriedale fiber, which is one of my favourite wools to needle felt with.

I found the base on a floral display, so immediately saw it as a base for a doll. I had to wire her feet to it, which meant reworking them a bit, but I think I pulled it off.

This time I didn't wire the hands. I can make them much more delicate if I don't wire them. The figure is 13" tall from her toes to her finger tips. It was a challenge to create the face all in white and I did consider some colour for the eyes, but finally left it white. I used the suggestion of eyes, by making the lids half closed. I saw this on a stone statue and thought it very effective.
Needle felters can learn much from statues.
I saw her dancing in the moonlight, a figure lit by the light of the moon. She'll be up on my Etsy store soon. maybe today!
