He’s got a curl in his hair and beard. He’s wearing denim. He’s a very handsome fellow. The toile is amazing- look at the tower on his arm!
After 6 men, I decided I needed a little break and work on something that would finish up quickly, hence 4 fish!
And my friend and neighbor Mim, modeling fish for me.
This one was an experiment- I over-dyed a multi-color printed fabric and it’s not toile. But, I love how he came out- Hurray for trying new things!
Here you can see the characters on his arms-
Happy long weekend, to everyone who gets one. I will be working of course because that is what self-employed people do, right?!
I am getting stacks of tattooed men sewed up, so how do I choose which get finished first? Well, the last one (first of this batch) was left over from before, waiting so long to be done. He had to be first. And this fellow is cut from an amazing toile fabric- I couldn’t wait to see how it looked, all finished up!
He has a swirly print fabric beard.
I’m trying out this new hair-do based on some men I did a long while back.
He is made of a reclaimed wool sweater and knits always make for a rounder (chubbier) doll.
Here he is standing amongst the alium foliage. In just a few more weeks, all the foliage will be gone and this will be a sea of purple lollipops!
I had to make 2 jackets to get one to fit- the first one was just a bit too tight and he looked so uncomfortable!
This fellow was a special request, based on a child’s drawing. I’ve never done that before but the vision in the drawing was right up my alley!
Yes, he has binoculars. And a green striped sweater vest and a dark red bow tie.
Oh, and look- my fritillaria are blooming!
