Second Second Success

The second time winning second place for my second felt doll entry. Strange, huh? That’s what I discovered while roaming the indoor exhibit and craft buildings during the fair. Back in the archives of 2010 I mentioned my first, the felt doll version of Kill Hannah frontman and vocalist Mat Devine (link here -it will open in a new window or tab). Mat won me second place in the category.

This year I decided to try another doll entry. Out of the dozen or so additions to my collection I chose my latest, a tribute to keyboard player Erik X from the band Creature Feature. I thought it took an eternity to line the stripes on his shirt just right and accurate with the real-life costume. He is entirely made of felt except for a pair of shoes/boots/feet from scrap leather.

Does anyone see the resemblance?

But the best reward of all, more precious than the $6,50 premium and a ribbon, was this:

Complements from the band itself! (However I believe Curtis, not Erik, responded.)

I’ll be making more dolls when I replenish my felt supply.
