mr. popular

I could spend all of my time making tattooed men because they are my most popular item but I’d burn out fast if I didn’t mix it up. But back to the men. I’ve got a pile that I’m working towards finishing. First up-

Horses on his chest and arms!

Sometimes when I am taking photos, I can’t get a single good result. Other times, I have more than one that seem too good not to show you!

I look at the last time I posted here on the blog and realize it has been a few weeks. I never have the urge to post unless I am finishing up dolls. I’ve been busy with other things though- a baby blanket gift, a trip to Chicago and sewing there with my daughter, new placemats for me, clothes making- a tunic and a shirt that I cut out and started but has since gone into limbo. I am more likely to be posting these projects on Instagram. It is so easy and in-the-moment. Happy 4th to everyone in the US!

last man for now

This is the last man for now but I love this toile so much that I just couldn’t leave him lingering in the in-progress bin any longer.

The plan is to cut out a whole new batch and start the process over- cutting, dyeing, marking, stitching, stuffing, embroidering, embellishing… SO many steps. That’ll start next week I hope.
