Inspired by Angela!

I was practising drawing small faces for the on-line course I'm taking (Windows with Angela Jarecki, check it out, it's fun) and I got carried away with inspiration and made the faces up into tags and pindolls. I drew around a large cotton reel, coloured the faces then cut them out with pinking shears. Then inspiration struck and I applied them to scraps of collage and embellisher fabric from the 'might come in useful' bin. Some wadding, backing fabric and a few stitches and beads and here's the result:

I'm hoping to sell some of these at our Llammas Fair this weekend.

With the Llammas Fair in mind, I also made up this batch of 'Fish-face Merbabes' (that's where some of the scraps came from!):

My young man of a son was just walking past the computer when he noticed "Autumn" and asked what it was. I them proceeded to show him more of your dolls and he was "well impressed" "they are really, really good". I thought it was lovely to get such a comment from somebody who is "not really into arty stuff" so I'm posting because to be sure he wouldn't!
