The Girls

Wednesday, May 9, 2012

Gosh, I'm sorry to keep boring you with MORE felt badges but I just can't stop making them! They are such a fun and flexible craft.

These girls were made for the Felt Badge swap over on Craftster. My partner mentioned that she liked "odd Ripley's type themes" so I ran with it! I did a Google search for "Sideshow Posters" and found inspiration in a painting that I'm kicking myself for not being able to locate now!! I'll keep looking.

I used wool-blend felt and 1 strand of DNC embroidery floss to put her together. She is roughly 2" tall. Jake couldn't wait to get her out of the house. He thought she was a bit creepy but I liked her and was sad to have to send her away. Hopefully she's happy in her new home.















In other news, I'm excited to share that I'm going to be the monthly craft contributor on The Lovely Cupboard! Heather has gathered some impressive gals for her team and I'm so honored (and intimidated) to be part of the group. I'll be doing my first post there later in June. In the meantime, check out the sweet introductory post she did for the team today.

I saw these on Craftster and thought they were sooooo cool! I like the creepiness.

OOOh, she is a bit creepy! But hey, creepy can be pretty good too, have you ever seen Mark Ryden's art? And to a lesser degree, Yoshitomo Nara's? They can be creepy, but oh so awesome. :)

Congrats on your new post over at the Lovely Cupboard!

I LOVE this badge! I saw it in the swap gallery and my first thought was 'I want that!' I'm thinking I may attempt something similar in embroidery. You are the queen of felt badges!
