This fine fellow was a special request gift for another very fine fellow! I had a blast making him a little bit extra special. Here he is without his cap-
He has an eagle on his chest and George Washington on his arm. He has an antique reindeer button for his belt buckle- perfect for a lumberjack! I’d been saving it and waiting for the right man.
He has an axe and I also made him a backpack so I could put some surprises in it.
I am getting to the last dolls of the year here. Some I am waiting to post until after Christmas since I don’t want to ruin any surprises. This fellow will be going into my etsy shop right after I post this.
This toile is wonderful- I love the sailing port imagery. He has wool felt suspenders with embroidered decoration. And an axe of course.
He has George Washington on his chest and cherubs on his arms.
Also, embroidered suspenders.
Oh yes, I have a crush on him!
He has skeleton tattoos and an embroidered belt buckle.
I am packing him up for his new home as soon as I post this- Good-bye handsome man!
Someone asked me to do a lumberjack with skeleton fabric after I made this fellow at the end of September last year, Yes, 10 months ago. So I have finally gotten to it!
I needed a few more fellows to accompany me to San Francisco.
He’s got some fancy suspenders!
He’s got an embroidered belt buckle and high lace-up boots.
It is time for a new camera. I’m getting cloudy spots in my photos. Bummer. I’m not a fan of upgrading my technology. I like it when I actually know how to use my tools. But really, it’s time.
I liked the bright leaves reflected in the window of the porch door.
I will be posting this fellow and his friend into my Etsy shop soon- hopefully tonight.
I feel like the finishing of things is going in slo-mo. This fellow has been on my desk for a while.
Lots of photos ahead!
He has a kerchief in his breast pocket.
And crossed axes on his belt buckle.
His chest tattoo is a cow and a milkmaid.
And some poultry on his arm.
Can you see that his hair is made from corduroy? Wool corduroy! I’ve had it in my stash for ages and finally gave it a try!
I am teaching the swaddled baby class this weekend at the New England Quilt Museum. I hear there is one seat left if any one is interested.
