I had this creature hanging around my studio disguised as a cloth doll I had attempted to make and pretty ugly it was too. So off with its head!
I painted onto dry cloth with acrylic inks to get the spots, it spread beautifully. The clothes are made from some sort of 'pretend' muslin I had stashed away. The eyes are vintage buttons. I didn't use any patterns at all in the making of this. I stayed true to my own self imposed rules of de-stashing by not buying anything. It is 18" high and has button joints.
