After the Valentine love punks I made for my granddaughters, the first was Gigi... who is now listed here... on Etsy. This and all the other punk dolls below are made from a vintage log cabin quilt, circa 1930's-ish. If you look closely at the seams, you can see that most were pieced by hand! I'm using vintage buttons for eyes, bits of wool felt, old keys, faux fur for hair, and trim from my stash of silk sari ribbon, vintage rick-rack and other lovelies. Each is about 6.5" tall.
Next came Babs... a birthday gift for a friend. This is my personal favorite so far. I just love how much character came out as I worked on her.
Just finished Posie this afternoon, and she was sold within the hour! Homage to my friend, Catherine Zacchino (aka Junker Jane) for the design of the stitched "X" mouth. I totally love the super old coral pink button. I bought that button at an antique store a few years ago for 25 cents, just because I loved how worn it was... the only thing I bought that day.
