little lois

Since I started making dolls and stuffed animals I’ve been wanting to make something more abstract. This is what I came up with. I was inspired by the Omiyage I made. Also by this tiny round clay doll from a book at Kitty’s Oriental Craft Shop on ebay. I was also very inspired by the army of cutie birds by Jill Bliss and the beautiful dolls Rosa Pomar creates out of such stunning fabrics and trims. I really envy her wool/cashmere blends and William Morris fabrics! The medium I chose to work in is cut up grungy kids clothes from the 70s.

I named her Lois and embroidered it on her butt. I really need to work on my embroidery! I filled her with heavy lentils on the bottom and then clusterfill to puff her out. The lentils do the trick! She’s perfectly weighted for tossing around. Just ask Oscar.
