I made this little Spoolman figure for A2K in the most recent round of the OWS101. Here's the gallery 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  Cheesy

I love Spoolman!

You don't make it with your hands.
You form it with your hands.
You make it with your mind.

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!
