This toile is awesome- it started as a vintage linen curtain that I found on ebay. So much going on!
He looks to me like a beach bum sailor versus a Navy sailor.
With his hat-
He has got a battle going on on his chest! This fellow is made from some vintage over-dyed linen draperies. His back is amazing too-
Big Man Sailor-
This pic makes me laugh- I wonder how that tattoo continues under his trousers…
This is the first of 3 sailors that are in the works.
Boats and more boats-
I said I would make this for someone many months ago… so finally he is done.
and no hat-
Such an awesome toile and perfect for a sailor’s tattooed chest. I love this fabric. I got it off of Ebay- it was a 70′s linen curtain panel, never used, with it’s labels still on. Of course it wasn’t peachy colored; I over-dye to get the skin tones.
Here he is without his hat-
Other Sailor men I’ve made- here, here, and here.
Pretty much the same but different, right? This is my thinner man pattern, he has brown hair instead of black, but the tattoo placement is pretty much the same.
2 Sailor men- Ahoy! I’ll post one today and one tomorrow.
And a tip of his Sailor hat-
I love this toile with this amazing boat.
I’ll be back tomorrow with the other Sailor!
