Goddess Doll

This piece was done on the needle felting machine. I started with black wool roving and made two doll shapes (front and back), I then added the embellishments and needled both doll shapes hard. I then put the finished outsides facing together and needled around the shapes edge to "sew" the doll together. I turned the piece right sides out, stuffed her with wool and needled the end. I did have to do some patching by needling by hand because I hadn't gotten the black edges thick enough originally. So my first 3D piece made on the felting machine!
