Is has been so long since I have graced Kirsty's Creative Space. Just under a year I believe.
Hopefully I can be welcomed back into the fold after such a hiatus:)
I am again working on my toys for Thread Den. Doing variations of my Pussycat Doll and Monsieur Rabbit.
This little Monsieur has limbs for the first time, but his trademark face still prevails. He is for the Easter Market and will be adorned with an egg. I have not decided yet whether it will be a crafted egg or an actual egg? Mmmggh any ideas???
And this little Pussycat doll will not be holding a kitten this time but rather a fish.
As it is the Childrens book festival in Melbourne this week I have been totally inspired by my favourite childrens book Cat and Fish by Neil Curtis and Joan Grant.
It is a beautiful beautiful book about a cat and a fish who are best friends but are, of course, from different worlds.
So I was thinking that Pussycat could hold a little fish, sounds easy enough, but I do have a tendency to complicate my toys, that's for sure.
I like all my faces to be distinguished, yet matching within the range and of course significant to my style of embroidery. So a fish with a face like this.....??? Well maybe, somehow.
So that is my creative space for today. For more be sure to pop over to Kootoyoo...
