I'm doing a swap on one of my lists for a palm-size stuffie - and I took it quite literally. Check this out!
Little, eh? I drew a pattern on a post-it note then enlarged it by 10% on my copier. You wouldn't believe how much stuffing this fish took - I was amazed because it's really tiny. Not much to tell about it - used some retro 60's style fabric which gave it some nice surface design. Did a little beading and that's it! It was a lot of fun and a bit of a challenge to make a stuffed animal this small.

The fish must be made of retro fabric...I think I had a 'shift' dress out of something very like that fabric when I was in grade seven or eight! Do you remember the Piet Mondrian shift dresses - did Mary Quant do those? I think I made two or three because my Mum used them to teach me how to sew on her sewing machine.
How do you find all of these mail art challenges and swaps (and when do you find time to sew?)
The fish pindoll is beautiful beautiful Judi, I will have to learn how to do the pindolls and trade some in swaps and the same with ATC's. I wish you the best of luck in all your swaps and you enjoy everything you get.
