theme from Claire.
Instantly knew what I was going to do. Sometime last year, I was
trolling old craft book at the public library. One on doll making
had an odd little doll that caught my eye. A legless, tabletop
doll with lots of pockets to hold sewing stuff, with a hook nose
(of a hook and eye) and snap eyes. I loved that it was functional.
(Gee, ever notice how fond I am of function?)
took note of that design and I wanted to modify it. Still tabletop,
still with pockets, but built to fit over a 28 oz can. Then you
could put something heavy in the can to keep it stable.
Claire's March theme came up, I knew it was time. And it would,
as the theme implies, it'd be a self-portrait.
suprisingly, I was a super artsy kid. Drawing, sewing, cutting,
pasting, drawing, sculpting, drawing and more drawing.
