“STASH” a Needle Felted Elf doll by Living Felt founder, Marie Spaulding.

“I think he will continue to be a work in progress, probably because he has touched my heart so much in working on him. I feel a bit like Gepetto, hoping one day he will come to life as a real elf.”

He is needle felted over wire armature starting with CW-1 Core Wool using MC-1 Felting batts (felt batting).  For his skin, MC-1 Fleshtone, his acorn hat  and felted boots use MC-1 Willow, his tights are MC-1 Linen.  His tunic is nuno felted over silk using merino top, silk hankies, and mohair locks.  He is crouching and stands 27″ tall as posed.

His name is “Stash” because he has a little hoard of treasures that he finds on his travels.  He scoops up each one and cherishes it, thinking they belong to no one and he can have them for his very own.
