Pillows and dolls

My pillows are all happily made by hand. I use vintage and modern fabrics. Felt and rick rack. I applique and embroidery them and sometimes add a pom pom or two. I see the pillows as an extension of my collages and like to custom make them for my interior design clients. I name them after ladies I have known and loved. Some versions are of words I like and live by or just the newest slang. The most recent here are punch hooked. They are all one-of-a-kinds.

The dolls here started out as a fun project for myself and my daughter, but turned into an obsession. I love making these and they have evolved over the years from what we called “widgets” to, into the teenage years, “worry dolls”
