When the going gets tough…


…people like ME get sewing!
I don’t exactly know why, but the more work I have to do, the more I want to sew.
It’s something creative to do that specifically ISN’T work, and gets me away from the computer (since my illustration work is almost all digital now).
I recently made a bunch of pillow dolls based on vintage advertising type dolls that I love. I drew fun random illustrations on vintage fabric (from my huge collection) and then sewed them up.
Pillows? Illustrations? That’s right- they’re PillowStrations!
I can make these when I want to have something that isn’t flat art (or books) for arts and craft shows, festivals, etc. I can also do it while I watch The Office, for instance. Good times, very therapeutic!

I opened up an Etsy shop, too. Check out RecycleRabbit.

I love Etsy- it’s fun to see what everyone else’s craft obsessions are.
I know I’m not alone!
(More pillow dolls going up on Etsy when I get the chance!)

    OMGoodness, i had those sheets, and the comforter, and dust ruffle to go along with it…Mr Rabbit with the egg and smiley face are totally made out of my old bed sheets fabric pattern. I loved that set as a kid.

    :shock:I had those sheets- Easter Bunny and smiley face are made out of the same material as my old bed sheets.
