The latest collection of Frida dolls is based on the outfits I have seen at the Victoria and Albert Museum exhibition :: Frida - Making Herself Up!

I have made The Sign guitar before, to go with some Prince dolls.
But this time I've made them a bit smaller, so that they can be worn as brooches!
They are backed with two layers of stiffened felt so that they don't bend easily.
This custom order was something a bit different.
I was asked to make a textile art of a book cover for the author's birthday!
I used free motion sewing and also fabric paint for the leaves, eyes and lipstick.
It was alot of fun to do, but very time consuming!
Back into the makes - here are the eye brooches I've been working on!
I did some handsewn eyes while I didn't have my sewing machine.
But know I have it back again, these ones are free motion sewn of course!
There are a few left in the shop - all one of a kind..
