Tiny Stitched Tiana


Don't you just love her droll expression?


It's as if someone is making her wear a dress and she'd rather be in jeans.

Tiny Quilt: Pearl


Here's another little fabric collage. 

This one is made with one of my favorite hand-carved stamps, Pearl. 



I really enjoy stamping on fabric scraps and figuring out 
how they can best highlight the features and look of the character.


For tiny projects I tend to keep my color palette reined in -
for example here I used blue, yellow and a little red-orange
as opposed to the whole paint store.

Mini Applique Quilt: Oscar


I've been on a sewing binge, whipping up tiny quilts featuring characters from my Unrelated Loons stamp collection.

His little butt makes me laugh every. single. time.
