It was fun to make 2 of these fellows together, although I worried about getting their arms mixed up- I am sure I would be the only one to notice or care!
Oh what a handsome man! Dressed in my favorite toile, too!
This fine fellow started out as a composition in browns- his toile tattoos, his eyes and hair, his boots, shorts, embroidery details… but when I got to choosing a kilt color and I’d pulled out more browns, well, it just wasn’t working for me. So, Red!
You can see his brown striped shorts and his knees-
And under his hat-
It is pretty darn hot here but maybe not so much where he is from which might explain his hat.
Here he is without his hat-
His kilt is removable and he has navy and white shorts underneath.
I made him a scarf but I think I like him better without it-
He has some snazzy shorts on under his kilt-
Swoon! Such a handsome fellow!
This pictures shows some of the details- his knees! And what he has under that gorgeous kilt. Also, the little 3-holed glass buttons.
Wow, 2 posts in one day! ‘Tis the season.
I haven’t made a kilted fellow in a long time and I wanted to make one before the end of the year.
The title sounds very seasonal, doesn’t it!
I will never get over how fantastic this toile is. Lions,
ruins, sheep, bunnies, owls and swans and ladies dressed like Greek goddesses!
I’ll start with some on-the-desk pics-
He’s getting his hair-do. And below, hanging with the other kilt-guy.
Vintage cotton plaid from my Mom’s stash and a cashmere man scarf.
Cherubs on his back-
Under the kilt-
