Working on these fellows is definitely more fun than the fiddly work of the pattern making so more men ahead!
His trousers have tiny stars on them. Love that fabric. His hair is dark brown and is over-dyed grid pattern but so dark that it doesn’t show up in the photos.
I made this fellow along side the other one. He is made with essentially all the same design choices but in different fabrics. It was fun to work on the 2 together.
I just love this toile.
This is a special order and will be going off to live in England.
I made him a scarf but I think I like him better without it-
He has some snazzy shorts on under his kilt-
Red-haired man with shooting star pants.
I like how the graphics on the beard fabric sort of matches the drawing of the toile.
There is this thing- I work away in the evening and I am finishing something. It is maybe 10 pm. I look and am convinced that the piece is an unsalvageable disaster. I have learned though. Step away. Give it another look in the morning. Yes, everything is going to be okay…
I finished him yesterday. I put him up on my desk just to look at him for a bit. Today I added an earring because he needed it, don’t you think?
This is my work table-
I’ve got a whole lotta man going on! Yep, there are the ones that are moving forward first, stuffed and standing. Then there are the flat ones in the front, waiting to be stuffed. There are a few that still need a few parts cut out and to be sewn up. All the stages of the tattooed men.
Hopefully I will have some finished pieces soon and the weather will cooperate for photographing them. See you soon!
this is #9 tattoo man and the last of this group. Next, lumberjacks.
He’s wearing a silk scarf because, Why Not! It crossed my mind while I was making him so it had to happen.
He will be joining the other fellows in my etsy shop this evening.
I have one more fellow that is stuffed and waiting to find out who he is. Hopefully I will get him finished before I get distracted by the pile of lumberjacks also waiting. This is the busy, busy time of year.
