I've been making little creatures out of bits of fabric found in thrift shops for a while now. Mostly moths, bears and foxes. It started off as procrastination while I was 'supposed' to be making bags and purses for my business - Red tree designs. But I found I was making more and more little animals and giving them to my children and friends' children and really loving the processes and thinking up designs and feeling so creatively inspired...then people started wanting to buy them.
So I've called them 'Willowynn' and set up a shop...and a website...and now a blog...so I can make my little fabric sculptures (as well as my bags) without feeling like I should be doing something else.
Here I will try to document some of my creative processes, things that inspire me and little snippets into the world of Willowynn...a record for myself as much as anyone else I guess...
