Wild Rose and her eaglet - Cloth and Clay storybook challenge dolls

Here are Wild Rose and her eaglet, hanging out in a tree together, just like they do in the Romanian fairy tale called "Wild Rose."  You can read the story here:
Wild Rose is sculpted paper clay with a stockinette cover.  She has a skirt made of needle felted wool and feathers.  Her hair is mohair.  The eaglet is needle felted wool. 
He looks kind of pitiful here.
Wild Rose is 7 inches tall.


  1. Elaine, they are both so sweet and adorable, great job! :)

  2. Elaine, just adorable! I downloaded the story to share with my kids. Thanks!! Penni

  3. Thanks, everyone! Penni - My daughter HATED the ending of that story. She was so mad that the girl had to get out of the nest and stop living with eagles in order to live with a dumb prince. I think I'll have her write an alternate version.
