'Chip' the needle felted Jack Russell, doting pet for a Red Nose Day Doll!




After the success and admiration of Salty the sea dog, I was left feeling bereft by his absence!
The best way to cure such sadness was to create a new friend for one of the Red Nose Day Dolls.


'Chip' is a sweet and shy little Jack Russell



With fine markings and a happy wagging tail!


His little face just makes you want to kiss him and melts your heart!


Like 'Salty' he wanted a unique little tie around the neck and being a shy little gentleman I decided to make him a rather splendid bow tie!


Dapper don't you think?


...and of course as its all for Red Nose Day he was given his very own Red Nose. (He seems to wear his a lot better than Salty!)




Ive also made a special box for him, like Salty it has his name embroidered on the top!


Bless him, I do miss him too now he is at Red Nose Day Dolls HQ.


So, if you want to get your mitts on either Salty or Chip then head over to the Red Nose Day Dolls Ebay page where the auction is on for 10 days!


Each doll has a small collection of fab pieces each made by clever crafts people.
You will find Salty in Macs trousseaux....
...and Chip is in Blossoms trousseaux!



As you can see, all 4 dolls are rather excited about their fame, interviews in The Guardian, TV  appearance on Graham Nortons Big Chat show and of course....



                                       

Mac, Salty and the cat with no name have their own film!
Enjoy and get bidding!

  2. These dogs are wonderful. Like this project I was happy to discover few days ago. I would be happy to take part of it. But maybe that's too late for this year ? That's with a great pleasure I would make something next year for another edition. But if not too late for this year I can send some postcards "Tea Box" and "Biscuits Box" which are on my blog. Just let me know !
