It takes a lot of time to cut every little piece, and to make tiny stitches to bring the critters to life. I adore this delicate and small work.
Red Marionette has been my work at home job for years. Recently I started working outside of the home so my inventory is all limited and in small batches. http://www.etsy.com/blog/en/2011/quit-your-day-job-red-marionette/
I am thankful each and every day that I am able to make these items that are special to me and find them homes with kindred kooky spirits.
