{In the Studio} Polyfil & Plush

It’s been a bustling studio in the last few weeks! I’ve never made so many thread drawing plush in such a short period of time. We’ve been living in a world of polyfil & boxes thanks to the KLTworks sale at Fab.com last week and I’m finally emerging from the studio & trying to catch up on life. Chris took this photo Sunday at midnight, right after we finished the last plush heading to Fab.com and I thought I would share. 

Hope you are all having a great week! What have you been up to?

{Process & Inspiration} New Rooster!

I’ve been itching to make a new thread drawing image & finally had an opportunity & the inspiration to make it happen! I love to watch chickens strut around – their group dynamic cracks me up. I thought it would be fun to try my hand at a drawing one – & it was a rooster that finally made it on to the canvas. When thinking of a song to go with this image (because there is always a song to go with my images)- of course Dan Zanes popped into my head. All Around the Kitchen was on replay often for awhile in our house & we tend to dance around a lot like this on a daily basis.

I was looking through all of my children’s books for chicken reference pictures &  Henny Penny was top on my inspiration reading list- however, I ended up using a picture of a Rhode Island Red Rooster as a reference in the end because my husband is from Rhode Island & it seemed to speak to me. After about 6 chicken drawings in thread, I was finally happy with one. Sayer’s love of red is what helped me choose the tee color.  I guess you could say it’s a sort of a rooster fire firefighter as far as he is concerned. 

And there you have it, the new klt:works rooster tees are finished & in the shop!  Now let’s dance!
