These needle felted, wool celebrity dolls are the creations of doll maker Kay Petal, who lives on the West Coast and lives and works out of her 36 ft RV, with her husband and pet dog. Kay grew up in a small Alaskan town and started crafting at a young age. Married 25 years and a survivor of cancer, Kay has been needling felt since 2007.
She met her felting idol, Birgitte Krag Hansen, after learning Hansen was traveling from Denmark to Alaska to teach some classes, and the rest is history.
You can learn more about Kay Petal and see more of her caricature needle felt dolls on her website Felt Alive.
