Item details

Inspiration for needle-sculpted characters, come from many different and surprising sources. This one came from a vintage novelty ashtray made in Germany, called Happy Feet!

It depicts a bald-headed little man with holes in the head for smoke to spiral out of, and at the tips of the toes are little holes for matches.

I instantly saw how it would look as a baby, expressing its delight in its toes and its parents, as well as expressing parental pride! Here is how I redesigned it in cloth and made it into the more lovable ‘Sole mates', recently published in Soft Dolls and Animals Magazine.

Plenty of drawings and coloured photo's are in this 21 page pattern, to show how to makes these characters that fit in the palm of your hand

Even making the separate feet is effective and eye catching!

Learn how to needlesculpt these characters and make one for yourself, or to give away for a happy event!
