Changes are happening


I've spent the last few days working on Peter the Pack Rat. So many ideas and visions running around in my head. Sometimes it's hard to get them out.

This has been a fun project. Yesterday I over dyed a skirt that I had picked up at the thrift store. It came out a little darker then I wanted, but it was an interesting process. Today I made the pants using the over dyed fabric.

This afternoon I distressed the suitcase he's sitting on and added little travel stickers. It's been great...........I love this part of being creative.

He is wonderful! He looks like he has lots of character. Love the trunk too! I always look forward to seeing your new creations. Great work too.

Tell Peter that if you don't like his pack rat nature, he can finish packing that bag & come to live with me!

Hallo Ute,

der ist total süüüüüß geworden.
Und den Koffer hat er auch schon gepackt. Ich glaub der will zu mir.
Also ich würde ihn reinlassen.
Alles liebe

Thanks for all the wonderful comments. He has been fun to make. Today I plan on working on his shoes and adding some rings to his ears and who know what else.

I'll post another photo later. ;-)
