I sent this out a few weeks ago for the Be Awesome Swap.  He is inspired by Mimi Kirschner's tattooed dolls.  I drew up a pattern, dyed the toile and embroidered the face-he's about 18" tall, give or take.  Who doesn't need a big handsome man around the house.  Wink

It is better to have crafted and failed then never to have crafted at all.

This is excellent! My sister just became a licensed tattoo artist so I may have to adapt your idea to make one for her (and maybe of her, too!).

Before I clicked on this from the front page I thought to myself - "That looks like a Hans"  but Boris is so much more fitting.  What was I thinking?

Awesome!  He can sleep in my bed anytime lol

Now that is super cool.

Kind of side-show circus freak thing going on. haha

I used to work with a guy they called "monkey" who looked like that.

(and no he didn't have tatoos ... he just had lots of weird patchy hair everywhere ... yeah, gross I know.  lol)
