Felt Alive Needle Felted Art Dolls












Felt Alive needle felted wool dolls are unlike any dolls you have ever seen. They are solid needle felted wool and fully jointed with a natural range of motion. They stand on their own and are full of character and life. No sewing, no stuffing, no painting and no wire armatures are used - every detail, right down to their eyes, clothing and hair is hand sculpted wool using needle felting techniques.  (thousands of jabs into fluffy wool with barbed felting needles.)

I have found my creative passion in making wool look like real people. The keyboard player for legendary rock band, The Who, has his own Felt Alive Li'l Rab Brundrick doll.  My Li'l Conan O'Brien has made two video appearances on The Conan O'Brien Show.   Li'l Freddie Mercury now resides in the official Queen archives and is part of Rock and Roll history.


Much of my work is for my personal collection and none of my  dolls are available for purchase.  My goal is to have a gallery full of needle felted pop icons and my list is extensive of who to felt next.   


Each doll can take weeks to complete and I only take on a select few commissions each year.  For availability and pricing please fill out my commission inquiry form.
