Another white-haired man. I love this white fabric and it is so perfect for the hair that I can’t help needing to make some more of these handsome fellows.
This French General toile is perfect too. A family portrait on his chest and a dancing lady on his back.
He’s got arrows on his pants.
Rooster on his back.
Just some party-ing skeletons, all over his chest, back, and arms.
I wanted to make him be a more classical Circus man with his striped tights and red shoes.
Day of the dead skeletons-
and a very fancy antique button-
Carrots, corn, beets, radishes, peas, onions, all the goodness!
He is mostly made of tans and browns. Well, except he has green eyes.
And yellow xxx’s on his black belt.
Oops, I forgot to post this fellow that I finished up before I went to Providence! I’ve been distracted with the post show clean-up, getting everything listed into my etsy shop, and getting started on new things. Poor guy.
I love this skeleton fabric!
I was planning on focusing on some new animals once I was back from the Providence show- cats, foxes, dogs, but somehow got distracted and I’ve been putting together and sewing up a big pile of men. To explain that further, I had the body parts dyed, cut out, and had most of the head-to-body and hand-to-arm sewing done. I needed to decide and cut out the trousers/tights/pants and shoes/boots, styles and colors. Then sew them up. There are so many steps. Here is my pile so far. These fellows will get finished up over the next year or so.
Tomorrow I head down to Providence for the show. I’ve been trying to get a few more things finished up. It is very busy around here! I still have some free tickets available. Contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested.
A very very serious fellow.
He’s got an angel and George Washington! Also a fancy glass button.
I gave him a widow’s peak.
Urns on his arms.
That’s all the men for now. I’ve got a pile of parts to sew up before I can finish anymore. On to other things for a bit.
He’s got a little curl in his hair-
Goddesses, cherubs, birds and so much more!
An antique shell button and lots of tiny starts on his pants-
Here is the other goddess-
This silver-haired fellow brings back the beards.
More Day of the Dead skeletons.
