I made Buttercup’s body with a wool sweater that I felted. I stitched the sides up with some blue alpaca yarn and stuffed it with lavender buds and wool. I created her head in some wool that I dyed with henna to create a nice skin tone. Then I needle felted on her face features with wool. I needle felted yellow yarn to the top of her head and then braided it down the sides. The yellow yarn came from a local farm, a sheep named Berthold, and was dyed with marigolds. Then I needle felted a gnome cap for her with some local wool, dyed a gorgeous blue.
Here she is, ready to meet some friends! (Preferably ones who like to eat blueberries too, but she likes everyone.)
She was made for gentle play.
