One of a Kind Needle Felted Doll - Little Molly Melon-Head
100% wool fiber
Look who just fell off the melon truck! This listing is for a very special, one-of-a-kind needle felted doll created by fiber artist, Caryn Burwood, of Purple Moose Felting.
Little Molly Melon-Head is an adorable little "watermelon-themed" jester handcrafted completely from wool. She stands just over 12 inches tall from the bottom of her little bare feet to the tippy top of her little jester hat.
For anyone not familiar with needle felting - it is a process where little bits of wool are layered and sculpted into shapes using a thin, barbed needle. There is no sewing, gluing, or stuffing - it's all done by hand via hundreds of thousands of pokes with that little barbed needle. Just as a point of reference, this doll took over 40 hours to create. I watched as her personality took shape and I saw her slowly grow into the sweet little melon-head girl that she is today. Please only consider purchasing her if you can offer her a loving home where she will be spoiled and adored! When you see her in person, you will understand - she is absolutely, positively yummy!
Note: Please keep in mind that Little Molly is an original one-of-a-kind art doll - she is not a "toy". Should you choose to play with her (who could resist???) please play gently! Also note... She is not a free-standing doll. With cirque-du-soleil balancing skills you MIGHT be able to get her to stand for a few seconds, but she is typically most comfortable propped up against something.
