I Want You!

This Uncle Sam makedo that I made was totally made by hand without the use of a sewing machine. He has the traditional pointy finger and is dressed in partiotic colors. He also has the first altered art book of Patriotic Sayings that I attempted. All the partial sayings are on torn parchment paper. There is a little charm on the front of the book that says "Hope". I think he turned out good!

What a crack up (a little play on words)! Look at these chickens by David of Chicken Lips. I got one and put him in a miniature cast iron frying pan in my kitchen! I thought I would drop from laughing so hard what a sense of humor he has and it shows up in his work too. Made my day!
