having fun this weekend

I was inspired by Denise Litchfield in the Summer issue of "Stuffed" magazine. Hers are way cuter and way smaller, but I wanted to play with the idea.
this little guy is smaller.  I used thrift store kids clothing.

This is journal #3 in our collaborative journal series.  I had the idea of piecing together the printed tin and tracy worked from about 9pm-2am this morning playing around with the idea.

  17. I love your idea of using thrift store childrens' clothing - I'd never thought of that in my quest to buy fabric! I suppose you wouldn't feel so bad about cutting up cheap clothing? Lovely work Teesha!

  18. wow!

    I had no idea you loved these so much - and your inimitable style shines through.

    I am honoured you like them enough to be inspired.

    I loved travelling to Artfest the two times I went, and I hope the softies will live on in the hearts of everyone.
