Making & Material
Jeans waistband twisted origami style became a shape that could be any four legged animal. I stitched onto her a skin of faded black t shirt. Smooth and long, they could be a slender grey dog. But too weak to strike out on her own. They’d need boundaries, in the form of thinned stretch denim, protecting the soft inside surrounding a strong core.
There are wires inside the limbs, making them possible. And they swivel 360 for agility, but please don’t test them.
They were built entirely by hand, stitched into place, and modified numerous times before the form took shape. Their eyes are embroidered free hand using new threads.
Made entirely of scraps stitches to scraps, they are flexible, sturdy but fragile relative to noisybeak pocket dolls, and require more care. They sit well on their bum, but might need a knead and a nudge from time to time. Please do not limbs beyond 180 degree or they might snap.
They are an art doll, not a child’s toy. Please do not let them near any child who rip things apart and swallow. It is also a fire hazard, prefers cool and dry environment.
