Here are some details about my project:
Category Quilting
Type Quilt
Style Art, Modern
giseled on craftsy.com

What materials did you use? fake fur for hair, recycled denim jeans for back ground and recycled jeans hem to finish around square. I used fusible interfacing for the pieces in the face and face and neck, but did'nt have wonder under so it was tricky. Plus I don,t have free motion on my machine.... False eyelashes,eyelet rim for earing, rhinestone sticky bead for nose piercing, furniture fabric for jacket.

I've always loved red hair - and this is the jolliest I've seen for a long time. I love your portrait and the fact that you've recycled such a lot of things! Excellent!

I love an opportunity to recycle so your piece really spoke to me. The fun colored hair and piercing could've been me in another life also. They both were things I wanted to do but never did because I knew the parents wouldn't approve. What a fun place to do all those rad/knarly/wild/funky things I always wanted to try!
