…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!)
