FELTED HEAD DOLL CHARLIE BO

With this e-book you can create a 45 cm Charlie Bo felted head doll yourself which is the result of a cooperation between Mariengold and 1000 Rehe. This offer only provides the e-book with the tutorial and the patterns. There is no special material kit for the making of this doll available.

Naturally, the Charlie Bo's head is particularly striking. In comparison to rather simple cloth dolls, it is shaped with much richer details and has features such as a neck, a chin, cheeks, eye sockets, dimples, a nose and a mouth.

Charlie Bo’s hair is made out of curls from Wensleydale sheep. Its eyes are embroidered and they have pretty sweeping eyelids. The mouth and cheeks are colored using a water-insoluble watercolor pencil. And Charlie Bo can wiggle its ears!

The doll has a slim, rather delicate body with easily movable arms, legs that have been attached to the torso from the outside, a slightly rounded belly, a bottom with two little cheeks, on which the doll can sit unaided, a bellybutton, nipples and dimples at the elbows and the knees. The hands and feet are filled with granulate material, so that they hang somewhat heavier.

Speaking of feet, they even have soles and love to wear shoes! We have created leather shoes complete with laces especially for them, which fit perfectly and will not get lost, guaranteed. Of course, Charlie Bo does not only wear shoes, but also a convertible overall, which can be worn both as a dress and as pants.

The recommended age group for dolls like Charlie Bo is 6 years and up. Felted head dolls are perfect for school children and for adults who take joy in very unique dolls and/or collect them.

LEVEL OF DIFFICULTY AND REQUIREMENTS

This tutorial is for doll-making enthusiasts who take pleasure in a challenge, whether you are a beginner or more advanced. It offers a good introduction to making felted doll heads, imparts new techniques and patterns, and whets one’s appetite to broaden and refine his/her skill set.

Basic knowledge in sewing and needle felting are advantageous, but not necessary, as the most important techniques are explained in the tutorial.

However, basic knowledge in crocheting will be needed for the creation of the wig.

Nice ebook, wish it had more detail in regards to needle felting the face. Maybe a video would be better to show the procedure.
