The Seamstress- Susie is her name- isn't exactly a self portrait but she is related. (I'm taller.) Susie loves to create works of art using fabrics and buttons and colored floss. She collects buttons and ribbons and ric rac. So it only seemed right to create her portrait using the things she loves.
The Seamstress- Susie, I has been created using felted wool and felted cotton. Her gown is a combination of silk, cotton and a collection of buttons. Susie has artfully accessorized with measuring tape, a ric rac-wrapped bobbin brooch, and a necklace made with hooks and eyes. Her hair is adorned with zippers and pins and needles are tucked into her pin cushion bun.
Isn't she lovely?!
The Seamstress rests on a red and white background and is finished with a small black and white check cotton backing. She measures at approximately 14" x 18" and is ready to frame or display as is. Click here to see here listing.
