Applejack feltie by Voodoo-Tiki Applejack feltie by Voodoo-Tiki

AJ is done (except for hat). The sun came out just long enough for me to take a few pictures. 

She's made from wool-acrylic blend felt, painted with acrylics and finished off with a chenille yarn mane. I filed her under art dolls rather than plushies since she's not really exactly cuddly. 

I'm pretty happy with it! It's been cold and damp so the paint and glue has taken forever to dry. The only thing that bugs me is she doesn't stand upright on her own. If the legs were weighted she might. I've altered the pattern so the one hind leg is further back, that might fix it.

I've always had such a hard time painting on felt, how do you get it to turn out so amazingly?

I used very watered down paint and painted it over a couple of days, letting it dry between layers. It would have gone faster, but it was really cold and damp here and it didn't want to dry out.
