A Merman should come after the fish, I am absolutely sure. I am still working through a pile of men that are sewed and stuffed, prepared before Christmas. Little by little, they all come to life.
I made his beard from a quilting batik fabric.
This toile- ships and florals.
Not exactly green man weather around here but it gives me hope for Spring.
Variegated green laces-
This fellow is made from some crazy toile! Looks pretty standard on first glance…
but I’ve never found another toile bit that had something like this on it- so funny!
I bought the fabric at a vintage/antique store and it was just a sample piece so only one doll.
I have started off the year by working on some of the partially finished dolls that are lying around my space. So many piles, so much mess!
And this is who got finished!
This is the first finished doll with this toile- I was interested to see how it would look. Very Handsome indeed!
This toile is awesome- it started as a vintage linen curtain that I found on ebay. So much going on!
I posted this on Instagram and people remarked on the bull… hmm. I thought it was a cow and that lady is maybe milking her? I will have to pull out the fabric (if I have any left) and see the bigger picture!
I was getting pretty brave with that beard fabric, right?!
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…
My rally is finished but I had some more pieces that were sewn up and I wanted to finish them up. Here is Farmer #2. His trousers have a print of barbed wire on them.
