I hadn't heard of Salley Mavor before. Where had I been? Of course, we took the book out and I fawned over the pages for days. It was just beautiful work! As a textile major, I could certainly appreciate the beauty in all that she did. The little details were just spectacular. And the acorn people! Oh, how cute they were! I could certainly make use of my acorns this way!
So I gave it a shot...
I could do this! I could make more! Before long, this little guy had a whole bunch of friends!
Each one a little more detailed than the one before it, I continue to make them. They are addictive! As you can see, one of them even has a hand knitted sweater! They take on their own personalities as I go along.
Now I see that Salley also has a book with directions! I'll have to check it out!
Aren't they sweet?
