Richard The Red Santa - New Needle Felted OOAK Handmade Santa Art Doll by Linda Walsh

Richard The Red Santa - 16" Needle Felted Handmade OOAK Santa Art Doll

Richard The Red Santa just loves the Christmas holiday season because he loves the color red and decorating everything red. It's such a cheery and upbeat color and matches beautifully with the green and bright white colors of the holiday season. This year he's decided to decorate his Christmas tree with red lights, a red bow, and all red ornaments.

Richard's inner body is fully bendable and is sculpted out of Sunflower's alpaca roving from Rock Garden Alpacas Fiber and his outer body, legs, arms, face, and nose from a beige mix from Rock Garden Alpacas Fiber.  His cheeks are blushed with a rosy chalk.  His black boots were made using black alpaca roving from Rock Garden Alpacas Fiber and are tied with black suede laces. His hair, eyebrows, mustache, and beard are all felted with Sunflower's raw washed roving from Rock Garden Alpacas. His brown eyes are needle felted with Ivy's brown alpaca roving black alpaca roving, and white prime roving from Rock Garden Alpacas Fiber. His mouth is needle felted with red roving.  His classes were sculpted with silver wire.

His needle felted pants are made from dark green roving and his needle felted shirt is a blue, teal, and lilac roving blend mix. His vest, jacket, and Santa hat are all hand sewn using blanket stitching. He is wearing a green and black tweed colored wool vest with a needle felted black button and red felt jacket that is tied around the waist with suede lace. A dark blue wool hat with felted pompom matching his shirt sits atop his head. Richard is sitting on fresh tree log and is decorating an artificial tree with red colored bulbs.

Richard is hoping he'll have enough red ornaments to decorate his whole tree. Hopefully, he'll have enough as nothing but red will do.
