A softer world

May 28th, 2008

Mimi Kirchner makes the most amazing soft toys and dolls, which I have a whole new appreciation for since my brief foray in to making stuffed animals. It’s ridiculously hard!!! I just love all of these, especially the robots and tattooed guys. Visit Mimi’s blog, flickr and etsy shop for more. Swoon.

    The willow pattern is my favourite pattern in the world [okay who is sad enough to have a favourite pattern apart from me? no one] so I love the last 2 dolls.

    My chest tightens with anticipation everytime I see that she has updated her blog. I think the tattooed beardy men are my dream man, I wonder if I buy one I can woo a real one, via voodoo.

    I just adored the french toile tattooed and mustached men!

    I agree with Jenny. It’d be lovely to see your house, or your room!

    Thanks so much- I’m blushing! And, actually, I thought your polar bear was fantastic…


  11. Those tattooed dolls are just great! Well all of them are but the gus in particular.

    Her stuff is great! And you’re right – making stuffed animals is hard. I tried to make a giraffe out of an old t-shirt one time, and the legs came out far too spindly, though I had cut it out larger/thicker than I wanted it to be :( Is the polar bear your only animal? I seem to remember you wanting to make a series.


  13. WOW. i’m not normally a big fan of stuffies…i mean i appreciate a good stuffed animal…but these! wow! i just love all of them. and as everyone before me has said…the tattooed guys w/ the toile fabric?! brilliant.
