Pegged


Okay call me crazy, call me what you will. I have a box of odd art supplies sitting in the corner of the studio and I decided to make these clothespin dolls on my day off instead of cleaning the house. I think I had way to much fun. I also made a Sargent pepper-esque dude with a felt blue coat and frilly white shirt and matching floral pants to go with the groovy girl but unfortunately his face got a little smudged so he got his photograph privalages taken away.
I think making childish things are a great way to get back in to creating after being in a rut I highly recommend it. All I used to make these girls was
-wooded clothing pins
-fabric scraps
-pipe cleaners
-hot glue
-paint markers (btw that muff is made of real wool if you were wondering.)
