doe and alova are just different brands! alova can be found at jo-ann fabrics and hancock fabrics, it think. doe suede is sold on joggles.com and other online websites and is a bit softer. faux suede is a blanket term for any fake suede but ime tends to refer to the type that ravels and feels more like real suede.
i’m working on a new tutorial and it should be up on my etsy on monday. i’ll post pics here when i’m done!!
i’ll be selling the remaining two i have on storenvy + a slot for commissions as soon as i finish setting it up! it’ll probably be in a few days. if you want to bookmark it it’ll be located at http://thedentree.storenvy.com!
sure! (btw i don’t take paypal at the moment, just credit cards, but i will in the future when i get it connected to my bank account)
the amount of wool blend felt you’ll use for the body and head should be equal to at least 2 A4 sheets. most wool blend felt sellers sell in sheets, not yards, and you have to order them online, usually. chain craft stores sell acrylic felt, which would be fine except you wouldn’t be able to felt the hair on without creating holes.
the clothes take so little fabric. most of the clothing takes up less than half a sheet of A4 sized paper. the ruffles are longer than 12” but if you look in the scrap bin at the fabric store, the pieces you’ll find are usually big enough. if you’re ordering in yards i wouldn’t order below 1/8” of a yard of any fabric you choose. you’ll have a lot left over but you need the room in width.
the paint and brush is just for the horns, unless you decide to make some accessories! you can also paint the fabric if you want.
one ball of roving is WAY more than enough. the type i use that can be found in chain craft stores is Bernat Roving Yarn from jo-ann fabrics, but if you have a local yarn store they probably sell roving in many different colors.
you need very little in the way of other supplies, just get enough embroidery and sewing thread to match or accent the colors of your fabric! they’re tiny dolls so one of any item you’ll buy is more than enough.
