This weekend I visited a friend, whom I've known for years since the time we were still studying and worked as caissieres in a supermarket for extra money. Nowadays we both have children and live in different cities, but we try to visit each other at least twice a year.
This year I only saw her once, last weekend to be precise, due to a new house and busy schedules in general.
Besides the flowers, card and money for the new house, I gave her a handmade Frida Kahlo. Last year she saw another Frida I made for a friend and she almost begged me to make one for her, too, for her Christmas stocking, but only now I had the chance to give Frida to her.
For Halloween I made the Lalylala Halloween Series (see here for Frankenstein, here for Zombie Brian and here for Diego Sugar Skull). Another pattern from Lalylala that I wanted to make for years, was Vlad the Vampire Bat.
Lalylala designed and wrote patterns for lots of dolls like this; same body, but different appearance. I think I will make the seahorse one day, too.
