Dressed Bubbies

I gotta tell ya, I am having so much fun with these. I don't know if I mentioned it before, but the plan is to have a bunch of them in a basket. It will be a basket of Bubbies!! I dressed these in assorted bits of fabric and lace. The kimono looking dress is the outer edge of a table runner.

These are the new ones. I tried using wool roving for 2 of their hair. it came out pretty good.
The curly white haired one is supposed to be sort of a side view, that is supposed to be a boob, looks more like a stunted arm. We'll see how she looks clothed.

I used 2 colors of roving on each of the smaller ones. I wanted the fading blonde and gray dyed blue look.

Stuffed Bubbies

I don't sew much. I have a sewing machine. It has it's own table in my studio where it spends most of it's time just sitting around and mocking me. It knows it intimidates the heck out of me.

But in the latest issue of Cloth Paper Scissors, there is an artist who does the coolest little odd shaped dolls. So I figured this looks like fun. And it certainly is a new area of creating for me. So I am making a 'Basket Of Bubbies'.

They will all be dressed in different aprons or shawls or babushkas or other Bubbie like wear.
Excuse their nakedness, next time you see them they will be clothed!!

Hello Bloglandia

My goodness I've been gone for a long time! Not because I wanted to be tho. It was just a very long hard winter and holiday season followed by family obligations that prevented me from going up tp my studio to work let alone spending time on the computer. But hopefully that is all behind me now.

My apologies to my online friends whom I have neglected woefully and to my Yahoo groups that haven't seen or heard from me in forever.

But sometimes you just have to take care of business first.

So here are a couple of wall placques I did from a design I saw in Cloth Paper scissors. I actually made 10 of them and when I get them hung on my wall I will post a pic.
This is a stuffie monster I made my daughter for Xmas from a sweater i shrunk by mistake.
I have never made a stuffie before and am pretty pleased with how it came out. His name is Rufus.

I am working on a bunch of stuff, making up for lost time. Going in whole new directions too. So please come back and see what I've done. I promise to better about posting.
