viking maniac

new work: viking backpack. It was quite tricky to find out how to make, but now it´s done and I´m in love with it.made from brown cotton babyroy, dotted cotton fabrics, Amy Butler fabric cheeks, white recycled IKEA cotton curtain, checkered linen, cotton band, polyester band, clasps) hand and machine-embroidered; horns and feet stuffed with polyfill; size from horns to feet: about 44 cm. Carprine horn button on the back. The backpack can be filled from the back. Did I forget something?

one of our dolls was published in a Portuguese magazine. Doll no.3 is enthroned in one of the fantastic pictures of the colorful home of artist Graça Paz. Graça´s house has been featured in many magazines before, it is really unique and everything in this home shows her very personal style. Thank you Graça! 12 vikings will leave us soon and will capture Chicago.... Yes, I´m a bit sad, I must confess...the little viking is also on the way, he´s a little surprise for someone special....
Have a sunny weekend... Friederike!

The back-pack is just perfect!
Now all it has to do is to find a four-year old who is a bit afraid to go to school. Or a grown up who likes some viking power also :-)
Love, Elisa.
