Make-Dos in Red
This Make-Do is made from red raw silk. Two of the smaller strawberries and the scissors keep are made from red nubby linen. I lightly antiqued the fabrics. The petals are made from over-dyed pretty green wool. I embroidered the strawberries with tiny little beads. [My fingers are still hurting, ha ha.] If you look closely, you will see that the beads are different colors. The big strawberry sits on an antique pewter basket. I turned the handle down to create a place for the scissors keep.
A close-up of the Make-Do. I added a pin and a vintage button.
The scissor keep holds a little vintage scissors.
Sold. Thank you
These are the little treasure in a basket Make-Do. They are little vintage sewing notions.
This sweet birdie sits on a vintage basket. She is made from brushed flannel, with wings and tail made from old silk and embroidered. I made the nest from scraps of wool, linen, ribbons etc.
All the little strawberries are painted and antiqued fabric. They are embroidered.
Sold. Thank you.
This last Make-Do sits on an old hog scraper. It is made from antique homespun linen and fine antique brown fabric. I embroidered the seams in dark brown and red. There is a tiny red raw silk ruffle to highlight the Make-Do.
The "heart in hand" glove is a pin keep. Untie the ribbon and undo a snap, and you will find needles.
A view of the small strawberries on top of the Make-Do. They are made from linen and raw silk and have tiny beads. The leaves are soft green over-dyed wool.
I live in a small town an hour north of New York City on the beautiful Hudson River. I am married to a wonderful and patient man who supports me wherever my fancies take me....be it antiquing, fleamarketing, decorating, etc.......
We have a great son and two absolutely wonderful and bright grandkids. I have been creating dolls and other creations since 1984...loving every minute!.....
My background is in fashion design and marketing. My birthplace is Germany where I lived my first 23 years. In my work, you will often see things that remind me of my childhood in Germany.
I have been fortunate to have been recognized for my work.
My dolls have been featured in Country Living, Country Accent,General Store,and Early American Life.
In 1997 I felt honored to be asked by the Folk Art Museum of New York City to display my work in one of their windows at Rockefeller Center for Christmas.
I will use my blogs to showcase my new creations and dolls that are for sale and you can still find me exhibiting at a few shows a year. Thank you for stopping by and please visit again soon!
God bless, Evi
