The chair. The lamp. The dress form. The top hat.
Creativity nurtures Creativity.
I would love to some day have a shared studio space with others.
I love to visit while I work, and collaborate, and get instant feedback....
and sharing rent in a fabulous, industrial space wouldn't be bad either !!!
These are my latest little creations.
I started by drawing three patterns.
I had some vintage, canvas style material that I cut, stamped and painted. I found polka dot and striped material for the backing. I went to buy the stuffing material, and once I finished stuffing them, I realized I had bought enough stuffing material for about 1000 little guys.
In the beginning, before I started putting them together, I wasn't sure I liked them … and almost half went into the garbage. I stuck with the project though, and once they were sewn, and I had my loose thread hanging, my vision was complete.
The ones I didn't like were now my favorites!!!
Funny how that works sometimes.
Cording material was added to hang them and I used wire and pearls to make the garlands.
Now onto more adventures...
