New stuffies

I made some new stuffies today. I really like using wool instead of fabric, it is so much more forgiving. And I can manipulate it easier.

This is Lolli, she is in my studio right now.

And this is her friend, "The little one".

And the little one

The faces are designs from my original paintings. I transfer the images onto muslin. The bodies are from recycled wool sweaters, and stuffed with fiberfill. Lolli is large, about 16 inches tall. And the little one is about 8 inches tall.
Now I need some striped sweaters to make more friends.
