I have been working on redesigning my lady body pattern for the tattooed ladies. Last week, after I got back from Chicago, I cut out some ladies from my new patterns. On Friday I dyed the fabrics. I sewed over the weekend and am now in the process of finishing some up. Here is my first one finished-

Red Lady

It is rainy here. The rain is suppose to last all week and is keeping me from photographing outside like I usually do. That is why these pics are a little “shadowy”. But, I don’t want to wait until next week to post her!

Using more of my beautiful silk ribbon.

and her sister

You can see the wavy fabric print here-

A vintage button-

I think they look like sisters, maybe even twins!

I will be putting these 2 ladies into my Etsy shop today and also this fine fellow. I never heard back from the person who commissioned him. In case you wonder why I don’t usually take commissions…

And, my toy designs are on sale over at Land Of Nod if you’ve been holding off on purchasing something.

She is a dark lady and the fabric details just don’t show up. The hair is black with brown swirls. The bra top is a batik fabric- black with gray dots. The bow is all black and all silk.

I’ll be working hard all weekend. We’ve decided to head down to New York around mid-week and spend a few days on each side of the Renegade Market, having fun in New York. That, of course, means I will have to stop working earlier that I might have otherwise… a good thing I’m sure.
