Summer fish

I am trying to get back into the studio groove after the pattern writing and my trip to west coast Portland. It is great to have projects that are almost entirely finished- I was able to spend half the day working and finished these 5 fish!

I’ll be getting them into my poor neglected Etsy shop soon. Next, finish up some tattooed men and cut out new ones! The hot weather will inspire me to stay in my air-conditioned studio.

Some of these foxes are made from wool I dyed last summer. My not-very-good dye job means slight variations in color which I happen to like a lot!

I think he has a very nice face- he looks sincere.

His vest is a print of ginkgo leaves.

dark fox girl

This dark blue dress fabric has always seemed a bit witch-y to me. Are there little fox girl witches?

Her jacket is a printed flannel and she has a spider web-by scarf around her neck.

In this photo you can see the pattern on the flannel jacket.

I got one of the fox girls finished!

She has a knitted lace collar- I bought the lace when I went to the Vintage Textile Show at the beginning of the month. Hurray for buying and then actually using versus hoarding, which is very easy for me to do. She has some flowers in her paw.

And, the stuff in her purse-

I am sorry that the photo doesn’t show the little button which is an antique black glass butterfly button.
