In the "old days", especially in depressive times, people had to "make do" with what they had on hand to make ends meet. That meant fashioning clothing from time worn curtains and plucking buttons from thread bare shirts for future use, saving the fabric for a quilt or a child's doll.

The idea of "making do" resonates strongly with me. I love things vintage and all things old and look to find items I can bring new life to.

This "make do" doll incorporates recycled and upcycled elements.
The doll, after being sewn and stuffed, was tea stained and embellished with hours of hand work. It is a unique and an original design, sewn with a pattern of my own making.

This surfer dude/fish is approx 15 inches tall ( a little shorter if he combs his hair!!), and about 8 inches wide. He and his "fish board" are sewn to a rusty old mattress spring that I have painted with a clear varnish so as not to stain.
His face has been needle sculpted, his hair floss. There are embellishments with buttons, a bell, a straw hat. The tea stained tags reads: Surf's Up (printed with old wooden vintage letter stamps.)
Created lovingly.
