i made this tonight, instead of doing laundry, for my friend who moved to new england last month. it's completely random and strange, just the type of thing she likes
the printed images are from a hebrew reader from the 1950s, and they're sewn onto felt with my sewing machine.
the little envelope that says "CONFIDENTIAL" (although i technically shouldnt be telling you this...) has a paper typed with her writing assignment on it, and sewn on the inside of the envelope.
his says 'recommended reading', typed over a little creature i tore out of the hebrew reader:
inside are copies of a few poems by bukowski, a short story from a book edited by david sedaris (my friend is an avid writer/reader and always seeking new stuff to read), and the first few pages of the book "hunger" by knut hamsun. like a crack dealer, i'm going to get her hooked.. she'll be buying her own copy in no time.
i have no idea why i made that little doll...
i'm exhausted! i hope she likes it! what do you all think?
