I have a penchant for large-scale stuffed animals. I made the rat in the spring of my freshman year at MICA and the snake in the spring of sophomore. I think I could potentially have crawled inside the rat before it was stuffed, that's how big it is. Anyway these are just rephotographed because when I first did the photos were AWFUL.
And the knives are pattern-made from actual knives; it was a pretty useful exercise from Intro to Fibers although I want to figure out a system (or just learn one in general) for making a pattern from my head.

These are some of the embroideries that I did over the last school year that I just forgot to post. The embroidery portraits are from my Intro to Fibers class last fall- the articles of clothing (a t-shirt and a cummerbund, in case you couldn't tell) belonged to each of the subjects. The t-shirt one is of my dad (he was and is so 70s) and the cummerbund is of my late "Grampa" Rose.
The rainbow one from a set of three illustrations from my Illustration II class. We had to have an image illustrating a certain idea and each image had to include a dog, a broom, and a radio tower. This one is "harmony" cause don't they all look so sickeningly happy? I sure wish I were that happy! This was the only embroidered one of the set because embroidery takes "sew" long.
