Catholic priest figurine
This Catholic priest figurine is a Christian home decor or devotional article. You can use it as part of a religious scene or give it as a unique gift to your favourite priest. Especially, it will be a perfect Holy Orders gift for a man who begins his service. This clergy statue can be also used as an educational aid in church schools.
Just like in the pictures, this felted priest is wearing a traditional black cassock and has a purple stole on his shoulders. The square cap on his head is a so-called biretta. His mission is to preach the word of God and this is why he is holding a needle felted Holy Bible in his right hand. Otherwise, the design of this statue is pretty simple. It is similar to Waldorf dolls, as it has only a few details and no facial expression.
When it comes to details on making this Catholic priest figurine, it is felted by hand. It consists of pure merino wool with a few glass beads and golden thread that I add for decoration. As most of these materials are biodegradable, the doll is environmentally responsible. To make it also more durable and stable, I stuff it with pieces of felt. Thus, it is very easy to place it on a shelf or desk. As you can see, this clergyman is of good quality. It also comes from a small business. So, whether you need a gift for a priest or just want to decorate your own room with a Catholic decor, this figurine is a good and beautiful choice.

How to care about this figurine
Due to its antistatic properties wool does not absorb dirt and dust easily. Therefore it does not have to be cleaned as often as other materials. However, if your figurine gets dirty, you can remove dust and debris with a lint roller or vacuum cleaner. If it needs to be refreshed, wipe it gently with a damp cloth or sponge.

Take a look behind the scenes!
In wet felting process you use some water to make wool fibers wet. With this watering can I am able to pour it quickly and efficiently.
This technique is pretty similar to wet felting but items you create are more lightweight. You can make nuno felt using silk, linen or other fabric with open weave – just remember to make a mess!
Take a deep breath before you take one of them into your hand. With tiny barbs on their edges felting needles are smart and dangerous tools for tangling fibers in the most laborious way possible.
Needle felting is the most laborious and the most precise way of making felt. It is used whenever one works on a detail and wants to control the wool down to the smallest fiber.
