Alex Project Doll #2




Here is my second doll of the Alex project. I am really enjoying working this way---there is just something different about working with fabrics that contain memories, I am more careful with my craft and at the same time it forces me to be inventive.  It makes me think that I should try working with more thrifted fabrics, though at the same time it's hard to resist those enticing japanese fabrics out there.  

In other news, I have this neighbor across the street who has an orange cat that always peeks inquisitively out of their window.  My dog, Albert, does the same thing.  I think they make eye contact sometimes, but whenever I double check to see if they are having a staring contest, one of them quickly turns their head and pretends like they don't notice the other.  It's quite hilarious.
