Highlights of the interior of the toy wool Kotelnikova Irina (Russia, Glazov). That's why I decided to take Irina a short interview about her latest work.

Irina Mikhaylenko, tell us how you started to do manual work?

Three years ago, I happened to see a photo of a knitted doll on the Internet. I decided for myself that toys, this is what I wanted to do. Make a toy, it's the equivalent to paint a picture!

S.Mihaylenko: What motivated you to create an interior of a toy?

I like to make unusual animals and wild cats. Has its own technique of performing work, in combination of knitting techniques and dry felting. All students on the frame can change the pose. I think for an inner doll it is important, when, for example, a cat can be laid at the fireplace or on the back of a chair, choosing for it any position. Today I do mostly domestic animal toys made of wool.
