Always inspired by the work of Mimi Kirchner I came up with the "Cello Lady" pillow/doll. She is a gift for my sister (who plays the cello.)  Smiley  Made entirely of remnant fabric, (upholstery fabric and wool,) and an embroidered face.  She is about a foot and a half tall.  Thanks for taking a look!


And had to include a picture of her cute little shoes.  Wink

This whimsical pillow/art doll will be such a nice gift!

Love how you made the cello look like her scarf!

And, yes, those shoes are ridiculously cute!
