Ghostie Girl Simcha and Hugo
Here is Ghostie Girl Simcha and her pet spider Hugo. I started her and four others last year and didn't finish them. Well... they're part of the creative program and they must live.
Simcha's body is needle felted over an armature. Her tights, black shoes, and top are needle felted. There are bead buttons on her Mary Jane's. She's got black cotton bloomers and a embroidered wool vest.
Her eyes are needle felted, her eyebrows and mouth are made of embroidery floss. I did a blanket stitch around the edges of her vest and also stitched a spider's web. She has glitter spiders all over her vest.
You can see more of the embroidery and the web. Hugo has a red flower on his collar. Her hair is dyed wool that is felted onto her head. Her cotton skirt, as you can see, has many spiders and webs on it. I was going to name her Arachne but that's so typical. Simcha and Hugo are on a mission for fun.
Hugo is made of metallic black pom oms, metallic black chenille stems for his legs, and googlie eyes.

This will be short. I'm working on a huge t-shirt quilt on the longarm. 88 inches by 114 inches. I did the part-time gig and I can't...
