Penny Wise the clown

Something a little different for Halloween this year ::
I made Penny Wise the clown from the movie IT!
He sold almost straight away, but I have been making some little
Penny Wise pegdolls for ornaments - either for 
Christmas or Halloween!

{Check them out now in the shop}

The Museum of Australian Democracy!
There is Anh Do, Nance Wake, Douglas Mawson and Ada Lovelace.
All amazing people, it has been a privilege to make these for the museum.

'What Ever Happened to Baby Jane' played by Bette Davis!

Linda, Ned and Queen Bee

 Linda Burney

 Ned Kelly


Another three commissioned dolls for the installation later this year!
These have been such a great challenge, keeping me awake at night for sure.
Linda Burney's cloak is made from faux suede with free form fabric paint.
Ned Kelly has his slicked back hair, long beard and removable helmet!
And Beyonce - well - she was the most difficult..

Making three of each doll has taken a while,
  it will be surreal to go back to making only one at a time!

Frida Faces

In between custom orders and commissions,
 I have updated the shop with a few new Frida Kahlo brooches.
These are one of my favourite things to make, 
with their free motion sewn faces, wool rug and fabric flowers and bead earrings.
Each one comes in its own fabric covered box, so that you can keep them safe between wears!

(I've also added a couple of new Prince brooches too)

More VIPs

Edith Cowan

Frida Kahlo

David Bowie

A few more VIPs to add to the list from my last post!
The more difficult dolls to make are to come..

Here are a few of the dolls I've been working on for an installation at The Museum of Australian Democracy later this year. I am making 3 of each, so it is taking a while!
I'll share the other VIP dolls with you as I finish them.
