Needle felted dollies

Hi All,
I wanted to share my recent journey into needle felt/ paper clay hybrid dolls :) I've been messing around for a while with needle felted dolls but was never quite satisfied with the results, then on Etsy I stumbled over BlackEyedSuzie and ran out to buy some paper clay!
None of them are quite finished yet, but you can get the gist, I've started a dolly blog and I'd love some feedback.

I love them! I've tried felting some dolls as well and haven't been happy with the way the faces turn out so I've given up and stick too felting other things and making my dolls with Powertex from Belgium or Paverpol from Holland. Great stuff and I leave the faces blank.
Love the way yours turned out.

Hi Chantal, what's powertex? As soon as I've finished writing, I'm going to click your profile pic to have a closer look. I love the idea of blank faces ;)
