Title: Spoolman here to Save the Day!
Post by: sheepBlue on March 04, 2014 04:35:59 AM
I made this little Spoolman figure for A2K in the most recent round of the OWS101. Here's the gallery (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=431258.0#axzz2uzoZGwXi) where it should be popping up soon. Now if you know A2K, you know that she is a prolific sewer and is a wizard with a sewing machine. So in her honor I made this little figure that is made up of a wooden spool, thimble, darning needle, bobbin and a darning egg (I didn't even know that's what it was until A2K told me when she received the package!), with the addition of a bit of clay and wire. Oh even the shoelaces are made from a bit of sewing thread too!





He is quite the jaunty little fellow  :D

I've always liked and often loved your TM projects, but SpoolMan is my favorite of all your projects I've seen. Love his panache and the vintage feel he has!

Thank you so much for all the lovely comments  ;D It took a lot of restraint not to throw a bunch of vintagey sewing supplies at this little guy but I think he came out just as I was imagining him in my head.
