My Needle Felted Gandalf by CatsFeltLings My Needle Felted Gandalf by CatsFeltLings
Outside pic 1

This is my needle felted Lord of the Rings, Gandalf, (Sir Ian McKellen style) plush doll FeltLing. He is approximately 20" tall, stands freely and is a sturdy, heavier doll.

He is 100% needle felted wool -- NO sewing, NO glue... even his hair is raw wool that has been painstakingly needle felted onto him (his locks are from a Navajo Churro ewe and his facial hair is Shetland wool that still has a bit of lanolin in it)... His clothing is hand dyed prefelt wool so it has a natural drape to it.

I can't even begin to count the hours I have in this FeltLing... I hope he makes you smile.

you are bursting with talent, the details are amazing, even if you took the beard and hair away, I could still identify him in a second, wonderful work.

Aww! Gandalf looks so soft, and you did a good job rendering his facial features. :) I just want to snuggle with him!!

:hug: You are so sweet, but this Gandalf is my one and only.. (so far). He took me over 2 months to complete (off and on) and is ALL wool.. 100% glorious wool. No sewing, no gluing/etc. so if you are familiar with needle felting, you can imagine just how many 'pokes' this handsome fella had to endure to be created in my hands. I hug him every day.. :shh:.. don't tell anyone. I've had a few offers on him, but I can't bear to part with him... yet. :)

If I make another (and oddly enough you were the 2nd person that contacted me yesterday about Gandalf!!), you'll be one of the first I let know.. :)

LOL!.. Thanks! I happen to have a crush on the man (Gandalf, not necessarily Mr. McKellen), so yeah.. I think he's kinda cute too.

Well, technically not quite a man but a Maia spirit in physical form, but point taken! ;)

Even managed to make my own Dwarfish and Elfish fonts, even if they not perfect and you need to refer to my key-charts provided to use them! :XD:
