This hair is awesome, right?!
I love the 3 faces.
Both classes will be at GrayMist in Cambridge, MA.
The whale ornaments will be on Saturday afternoon, March 11. If you don’t need a whale as an ornament, you could make it into a catnip toy for your kitty! Or make 10 and make a garland. Or a 1000 and make a curtain, an entire pod of whales. Wow, that would be incredible.
And then, on March 25, an all day class for Tiny World Pincushions.
Come and spend some time away from life and focus on something fun and concrete. The classes are small, all the materials are included, and give yourself a break from this crazy world!
I’ve tried something new- a twist on my man pattern. I’ve been thinking about it for a long while now and finally got to figuring out the tweaks and sewing him up.
It is fun to go through my supplies- which toile would work for a sea creature? Which patterns and colors would make a good tail? And sea hair, what does that look like? What about trims?
Here is the back of his hair.
I like how the rick rack works but I found a lot of other trims that I will experiment with too.
I am excited at all the possibilities. That is what keeps me interested and making.
I thought that skeletons on a boat, pirate skeletons, worked well for the underwater theme.
There are more in the pipeline!
That involves a great many color decisions which can be the best fun or very frustrating depending on the color, fabrics, my mood, the light… Anyway, by Friday, I had 34 fish sewed up. I picked out 8 to finish up- stuffing and the hand sewing. The rest will go in a bin and when I am in a fish-y mood, I will have lots to choose from!
