Jenny Yarn: Doll



I blogged about Jenny Mccabe's embroidered artwork here and on my recent visit to her blog, I discovered this lovely creation - "The Owl Lady" - built with vintage fabric, book pages and lots of delicate hand-stitches. What I found fascinating about this specific piece is the concept of strategically placed holes in the fabric to reveal words. 



Artist says: "I also have been thinking about the dresses for the dolls I've been making a lot and liked the idea of vintage pages under fabric, this was a good time to experiment.  As I began working the holes revealing certain words just developed and I love this idea! " I think it's a very clever!
