I'm not sure what I can say about this project other than I LOVE IT! Seriously, could it be any cuter? I want a wookie. loveandasandwich pretty much rocks so hard!

Tell me about the piece
I made four embroidery & applique pieces featuring the fuzziest creatures from the Star Wars movies!  Two Chewbacca pieces featuring quotes from Han Solo about him.  My favorite duo Smiley An Ewok just hangin' out on the Forest Moon of Endor, and then a Wampa right after its arm has been cut off, and not looking too happy about it Cheesy I made these for a Star Wars themed show.

Tell me a little bit about yourself.
My real name is Chelsea Bloxsom but I go behind the name Love & a Sandwich when posting my work.  I live in Boston, MA and work from home alongside my concept artist boyfriend and two fantastic pups!  I normally make furry plush monsters, but recently I've been really into appliqueing & embroidering on hoops.

What/Who inspires you
Anything/anyone with a great imagination!  Studio Ghibli movies, Tim Burton movies (the old ones), and too many fantasy/action movies to list!  Some artists that inspire me that also sew are Lana Crooks, Felt Mistress, A Little Stranger, Victor Huang, Becky Gould, and Steff Bomb.  All amazing people with totally unique styles.

What are you working on now? Do you have plans for a future project?
Right at this very moment I am working on a Ludo (from the movie Labyrinth) embroidery & applique!  I have plans for many more, mostly of my favorite fuzzy creatures from movies/tv.

What would you tell someone who wants to work with felt? Is it hard?
Working with felt is awesome!  It's inexpensive, so you don't feel bad if you're using up a lot of it if you redo your design and re-cut it.  It also comes in so many wonderful colors!  It is definitely easy to work with, it was the first material I started working with when I made plush toys.  It's easy to get nice crisp lines on your designs with felt, as long as you have a good pair of scissors Grin

I have to admit that I have never seen any of the Star Wars films, but these are bursting with character and made me laugh out loud. Brilliant.
