This fellow is made from some over-dyed Laura Ashley fabric that I have had in my stash since the 70′s. Yes, it’s true, I never throw anything away. When I was last sorting through the fabric drawers and came across it, I realized it would make good medieval-looking tattoos.
We had a few days of Spring this week. It makes one hopeful.
With his cashmere tam-
And without- see his curl?
Cherubs on his chest.
These fellows are dreamy…
And this one has the awesome toile! Ladies! Lions! Squirrels! And whatever that creature is on his arm!
Also, paisley undershorts…
A man in a kilt with an awesome sailing ship tattoo. Love!
Brown eyes, dark hair, cashmere scarf.
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.
