GALLERY


There is an amazing artist who calls herself Junker Jane; she makes stuffies with a weird and wonky twist. This is a swap for doll or stuffie makers who are ready to take their inspiration from Junker Jane. Click on the link to visit her blog, or google "Junker Jane" to view images of her work.

Details of swap:
--You will craft one Junker Jane-inspired doll, at least 6 inches tall, keeping your partner’s preferences in mind.
--In addition, you will craft one small "extra" for your partner.  This can be another doll (under 6" if you wish), or something that goes with the doll, or something completely unrelated to the doll and not using the JJ style, based on your partner's pinterest, wist, profile, etc.
--You will have 4 1/2 weeks to craft, from December 16-January 18
-- Please post in this thread (or the gallery thread) at least once a week so we know you are still crafting with us.

I am just all swapped out right now, so I will not be joining this swap, but I thought of something as I was reading the rules for the swap...

Wouldn't it be funny if someone misread the 6" for 6'Huh?!!!!! Roll Eyes

It would make for an interesting gallery!   Grin

That's a good point, Miss Barbara--I just changed it so "inches" is spelled out.  Thanks!

I've been fine-tuning my JJ + LHH style this week.  First I made some ornaments that were more creepy than I would like to see on my Christmas tree (I know most of you have seen them HERE already...then I made a cat, which came out a little too cute (he's the one below on the right)...and finally I made the cat on the left, which I think is perfect--not too cute or creepy, just weird.



Here's the back.  I've noticed that Junker Jane has a label that is sewn like this on the back of her dolls, so I couldn't resist:

Actually, I don't find either of the cats too cute or too creepy.  I think they are both just right.
