A girlfriend asked me the other day, "So what happens if you get a customer who is allergic to wool?".
I didn't really have an answer for her...until I made up this little guy. He is all acrylic and cotton. Not one speck of wool in there. I needle felted in the details.
It is constructed a little differently than my other flowers, and I think it looks sort of like a Cosmo. Truth be told, it was inspired not by a flower in my garden, but by a flower on my vintage 1940's apron.
You can see the blue and mauve flowers in the photo, if you look hard enough.
I think they are cute, and I am going upstairs to the studio to make some more.
