Our Little Felt Family!
This past spring I had the opportunity of interviewing Helen Greenstein, an artist living in Atlanta, Georgia, and the owner of Eleni Creative. Helen makes custom creations out of felt and everything is hand-stitched-to-order! You name it, and Helen can felt-ify it! Please visit Helen’s website to view more of Helen’s wonderful work!
I love custom creations because they are unique and one-of-a-kind! I knew when I saw Helen’s work, a few months ago, that I wanted her to make some felt creations representing our little family! Helen made felt dolls, pictured below, representing our family while simultaneously commemorating this time in our lives with Biscuit! The two dolls are just over 12″ long; and Biscuit is 6″ long from snout to tail! Isn’t Biscuit just adorable down to his little custom collar?!
It was a great pleasure working with Helen — she is wonderful to work with! We exchanged e-mails with each other and decided to pursue the doll creation route after I explained my idea and vision. Helen brought my vision to life! Helen involved me in each step of her felt-making process; and she provided me with sketches; photographs; and asked for my feedback during each step of the process — which I loved! Helen is truly talented and I cannot say enough good things about her! If you are looking for a special custom-made creation, you should contact Helen — I am sure that she can make your vision a reality! I cannot wait for these little felt doll creations to arrive! I am excited to display these dolls in our new home! Helen recently sent me these photographs, shown below, representing the final creation — our little felt family! Thank you Helen — I love these felt creations you made for us! I hope that we can work together again on another project in the future!
