Rabbit Art Doll by Sandy Mastroni


Lots of hand stitching on this little rabbit girl
The fabric is tea stained ticking , her head ,ears , arms and nose were made separately , and then hand stitched into the body
I made a fabric flower for her too
I painted her head with thin acrylics, ink and Inktense , then a coat of poly , then an antique medium is rubbed on and then rubbed off
The ears have wire inside so you can pose them
she is in my etsy shop
thank you for visiting me here !!!!! ........ have a lovely day
I'm off to make more fabric flowers now

weird Rabbit art doll , sandy mastroni



This rabbit art doll holds a carrot .... I bought this carrot so many years ago at a little gift shop in Fairfield, Ct. .... sadly there are no gift shops in my area anymore . Where did all the cute little shops go ? I miss shopping in little shops so much .  This rabbit is on reserve in my shop , so it is sold , but just wanted to post him here .  I like him so much , so I want to make another one soon !

a new cat heart pillow , sandy mastroni




I made another cat heart pillow .............. it took me forever , but I made it
I'm working so slowly , maybe because it's winter ... maybe because I don't have that " get it done for Christmas " feeling ........ but ........ the pillow is finished , and it is now in my etsy shop
" Fancy Cat " pillow ....... she has pearls on , lipstick mascara and a Honey West beauty mark

Cat heart pillow sandy mastroni


I keep looking at this , I made it a year or so ago ......
I think I would like to make another { similar }
but I'm in that " overwhelm place in my head " .  I could, should make greeting cards , I could make paper dolls , book marks , pillows ,cat dolls . puppet boys , mermaids ........ clean the house ,,,, Can't seem to focus
I have to JUST decide , just start something
It's 10:30 am .... I'm going to try to come back and have something new to post here { hopefully tonight }
Overwhelm ..... no focus ..... go away
Get curious interested , focused ..... start something !!!!
This is me talking to myself ...... I get so mad at myself ... do you do this too ?
