I decided to make a few softies...I have piles of felted thrifted sweaters....I have all these ideas spinning around in my head...as I am editing 12,897 photos off of Picasa to an external drive...I needed something to do that wasn't so mind boggling as " what am I going to do with all these photos".
I just started to doodle and here is what went from my paper to my sewing machine and then to my hands...
Olive might be a little dog....Lucy...well....not quite sure what she is..she just
evolved...I love, love making them...do you think they need a sausage dog as a guard dog?
Olive...made of a felted thrifted RL sweater with a special collar. This was from a Shetland sweater that was a gift from Peter..He went to the Shetland Islands and brought this back as a gift for my Mom...after my Mom passed away..I got the sweater..by then it had a few moth holes in...I felted it to save for a special project! I love the stripes and the small flower patterns..she looks quite sporting don't you think?
Lucy...I decided to use Mom's sweater for the body..changed her body style a bit and I just kept on going thru my stash pile until I found just the right combination that suited her! I love her slightly off look..dazed I think might be the word...fully stuffed...she is very huggable!
