I had an itch to get my fingernails dirty.
I'm pretty sure I purchased this pattern
from Veena's Mercantile last year,
and I thought it was time to tackle it.
I have to say that Kim is brilliant!
I love her method for the fringe on the hood.
I really had so much fun working on him.
I love the smells of cinnamon, coffee and vanilla,
and the worn look after sanding.
My friend had given me this ticking fabric, which feels
old and delicate, and I had to keep pulling strings
thoughout which leads me to think it was a tied backing
to a quilt at one time.
It was faded here and there, and I thought it would
add to the grungy process.
He sure was fun to make, and I'd like to keep him,
but I really need to list something in my KSGP shoppe,
so he is sadly for sale.
Don't you just hate it when you
fall in love with your creations????
But I can't keep it all....
