They are perfectly imperfect...and adorable

Oh I am SO excited about this post!! I got a sewing machine for Christmas & I'm so inspired to make some fun stuff- now I just need to learn to sew... your little monsters are too cute for words.

Aaahh, Michelle, thanks! You´re so sweet :-) Your dolls are so... you! So cute and whimsical and colorful and sweet! I´m so glad I could inspire you on this, you´ve inspired and taught me so many things! Like the book-binding. I´m such a sucker for book-binding now-a-days.
You know, they kind of look like sheep. Very well-behaved and shaved (except for inside the ears) sheep. Especially that first one with the orange nose.
And talking about serious work. I think you should make a monster-clock.
Hey-ho, let´s sew!

I love these, Michelle! And I appreciate the difference and struggle in learning perfect vs done w/out short cuts. It shows in your work!

There are SUPPOSED to be mistakes. THe Amish, as well as the rug weavers of the world purposely put a mistake into the textiles as a symbol of humility, for only god is perfect.

I always say some of my projects are more Amish than others. *laughs*

The beauty of folk art is that things are wonky doodle. That what I love about it-the simple humility of the work. That's how you know it was handmade and infused with love. We could all use a little more of that in our lives.
