Henson and Benson

Henson and her dog Benson were a gift for a mother, they were commissioned earlier on this year and now at last they have finally made it onto the blog.

Over her wool wrapped under clothes, Henson is wearing a Mohair jumper with a little cotton brooch. Her skirt is charcoal grey wool with a little button at the back and on her feet she is wearing felt boots. For her hair , I found using three types of wool added the softness but volume that was required.

Benson is made of wire and papier mâché, his body was over stitched until the right shape was reached, I then added further colour and other types of wool to create texture. Then gave him his ball of wool to play with.

Henson is 30cm when standing but is happily in her new home.
