Faces


I picked up the new issue of "Stuffed" magazine today. I haven't even looked through it as of yet, but somehow just buying it has inspired me again to make some softies. I was fortunate enough to be selected as one of the feature artists in the premier issue. I created these faces today in anticipation of making some more softies. I paint the faces on good quality watercolor paper. Then I print them out on "EQ Printables" injet sheets. EQ Printables is the finest ink jet transfer sheets I have found. The quality of the fabric is superb. I highly recommend it if you want to make fabric transfers. After the faces are made I will think of a design for the bodies.
