|button eyed folk of brighton|
The adventure of dotty bird begins about 6 years ago with the (strange) little creatures that sparked my love of sewing. My mum had lent me an old singer machine, which i had no clue how to use properly but I managed to fandangle myself some sketchy net curtains for my flat and even more sketchy little button eyed folk. I made one to cheer up my bloke and then made a load more and then planned an empire of scrappy button eyed folk. I took an evening course in freehand machine embriodery and a tonne of other pretty random workshops...including a needlefelt doll making one which led to the freakiest thing I have EVER made (which is still hidden somewhere in the depths of my crafty crud stash). Needless to say it did not represent the Fearie like figure that I had envisioned!
ALL KINDS OF WRONG!!!...
|what is this thing i have created....?|
|I think her lip fillers went wrong?|
and then I tried to fix the freakiness...
|stuff of nightmares|
it didn't work! Still makes me laugh though.
and with that beautiful image...I say farewell for now
