Rainbow Doll

I have long been admiring my friend Anne's beautiful dry felted standing dolls and finally decided to have a go at making one myself. Imogen will be turning 7 this month so I made her a rainbow doll. I am happy with my first attempt, she is not perfect but I am sure she will be loved!

I finished dad's socks but our camera died and I didn't get a picture before I sent them off for his birthday. I have made a heap of new dishcloths aswell and sent one off to dad's partner for her birthday with some cut little coasters.

I am deciding what to cast on next atm and think I might make a couple more dolls in the meantime..........................................


  1. Just delightful, I love needle felting,it took me a while to get the hang of it, but now I am away."Happy crafting days" Cheers Marie

  2. Hi Mel,

    I wrap the wool around pipe cleaners if you want the arms coming out of her body more.
