It takes time. 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.
To make a compact package of quirkiness and bright colors that can be passed to others is really fulfilling.
Little pieces of me are scattered around the world!
I mean when you think of it that way, how cool is that?
Red Marionette is my work at home job: 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.
